Young driver insurer pairs with safety charity

Tue, 18 Feb 2014

SPECIALIST young driver insurer Marmalade is throwing its weight behind safety charity Brake’s 2014 ‘2young2die’ campaign.

Brake, the national road safety charity, launches its 2014 workshops and awards scheme this week, and announces Marmalade as its funding partner.

Marmalade’s financial support enables Brake to run eight regional educational awareness workshops in the UK’s key cities this year. It will also pay for the charity’s national awareness competition which encourages teenagers to create hard hitting road safety adverts before announcing the winner at the Houses of Parliament.

Philip Goose, Brake’s senior community engagement officer, said: “Both are great initiatives that schools, colleges, youth workers and other professionals can get involved in.

“We want to get as many young people as possible thinking and speaking out on road safety and Marmalade’s support will help to make this happen. This is another example of Brake working with companies in the sector and we are delighted to welcome Marmalade on board.”

The young driver insurance provider says that education is key to road safety, particularly when it comes to learning to drive and new young drivers.

Crispin Moger, managing director of Marmalade, added: “Road safety is fundamental to us all. We set up Marmalade with the intent of ensuring the next generation of motorists gets access to reduced premiums through safer driving.

“Our partnership with Brake means we can spread this message to an ever wider audience.”
