Gordon MSP, Alex Salmond, has welcomed an initiative which is set to provide 2000 North East youngsters with the skills they need to stay safe on the roads, on buses, at home and online.

Mr Salmond assisted the organisers of the Grampian Safe Team event when they sought help last year.

The scheme allows children from across Gordon and beyond to take part in real life activities designed to raise awareness of potentially dangerous situations.

Organisations including Stagecoach, Schlumberger, the Red Cross and the emergency services have been brought together for the event being held at Gordon Barracks in Aberdeen.

Supporting the scheme, Mr Salmond, said:

"When I was contacted by the organisers last year I immediately saw the great benefit that this scheme could bring and was more than happy to help get this project off the ground.

"There is nothing more important than making sure that our kids are safe, and this scheme does just that, by engaging children with fun activities to highlight serious safety issues. This scheme has an extremely positive impact on the local community in the North East – raising awareness of risk and promoting safe practice.

"It is an endeavour worthy of great praise and the substantial efforts of the organisers should not be overlooked. That so many diverse organisations – from Grampian Police to Stagecoach – have come together to make sure kids in the North East are safe on the streets is testament to the importance of the cause at hand."
