M&S Joins in with National Walk to School Week

Tuesday 17th May 2011

M&S have joined Living Streets to raise awareness for Walk to School Week. From May 16-17th the aim of the campaign is to get children and parents out of their cars and walk instead. According to the Department for Transport, only half of all primary school children are currently walking to school each day. With obesity, pollution and congestion levels rising, National Walk to School Week is the perfect time to try the route on foot, said campaign organisers. Short walks in the fresh air contribute to a healthier lifestyle as well as a happier one, and saving on petrol will benfit not only the nevironment but your pocket as well!

To help celebrate walking to school M&S have compiled some useful statistics and created a fun, easy to follow ’walk to school’ game to help make your walk to school more fun. The free game is available for parents and guardians to download, print off anduse on the walk to school with children from today. You’ll be able to find it in the M&S website shoe department.

Living Streets run the Walk to School campaign, which helps children get walking throughout the year, and it provides a range of helpful resources, from classroom wall charts to collectable pin badges. Teachers, parents and education professionals can find lots of classroom resources and free downloads at the Walk to School website.
