Lancashire's RoadPeace Group
The 2017 Lancashire RoadPeace World Day of Remembrance service is scheduled to take place at County Hall in Preston on Sunday the 19th November at 11.30am. The multi faith service is open to all who have been bereaved or injured through road traffic collisions. The short service is followed by a chance for family members and attendees to lay flowers at the RoadPeace memorial stone.
You can register your details at anytime during the year to be sent an invitation for the event.
RoadPeace is the UK’s charity dedicated to supporting people bereaved and injured as a result of a road collision. The aims of RoadPeace run parallel to those of Lancashire Partnership for Road Safety as they both strive to raise awareness of the responsibilities of all road users, particularly drivers of vehicles, in order to bring about a reduction in road collisons.
Lancashire's RoadPeace Support Group was set up in February 2009, following on from a well attended memorial service held last November.
The group aims to give families and friends who have lost their loved ones, a place to offer support to each other and is supported by agencies across the county. These include; Lancashire Road Safety Partnership, Lancashire Constabulary, Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service, North West Ambulance Service, Blackpool Council and Blackburn with Darwen Council.
A small and informal meeting for the victims of crashes on Lancashire’s roads is often held. Everyone is welcome.
