TyreSafe calls for nominations for inaugural awards
TyreSafe is calling for automotive and road safety professionals (including tyre manufacturers, retailers, emergency services, councils and others) to submit nominations for the inaugural TyreSafe Awards.
The awards, which will be presented at a lunch on Wednesday 20 November at St Johns hotel in Solihull, will recognise the best contributions from a range of organisations around the UK in helping raise awareness about tyre safety issues during 2012 and 2013.
“TyreSafe’s activities and campaigns have made a significant contribution to improving road safety in the UK over the last few years,” explained Stuart Jackson, chairman TyreSafe. “However, this success would not have been possible without the high levels of support and participation we’ve enjoyed from a growing number and wider range of organisations. This first ever awards ceremony gives us the opportunity to formally recognise these efforts as well as inspire others to do similar.”
There are eight award categories on offer. These include independent garages, franchise dealerships, vehicle manufacturers, tyre retailers and manufacturers, emergency services as well as a community award which covers local councils, road safety partnerships and other road safety bodies. There will also be an outstanding achievement award which will be decided by the judging panel from all of the individual entries submitted.
Entry into the awards closes on 1 November, giving organisations an opportunity to include any activities or initiatives they run during October’s tyre safety month.
“We’ve made the entry process as simple as possible as we want as many of our fantastic supporters to get involved,” added Jackson. “We wish everyone taking part the best success and once again, we’d like to offer our sincere thanks for your on-going support.”
