European accolades for Missing Matthew Campaign

18 January 2008

Following Lancashire Partnership for Road Safety’s highly successful conference on saving the lives of young drivers, schools and further education establishments from across the county, and from further a field, have contacted the Partnership for the very powerful and emotional Missing Matthew film to be shown to their students and pupils.

Ann and Terry Hannon, have now discovered that they have been singled out, along with just one other person from the UK, for a European accolade for their efforts to increase road safety. The European Road Safety Charter Commission has chosen just 20 winners from 615 nominees from across Europe from Belgium to Bulgaria, Spain to Slovakia and the Czech Republic to Cyprus.

It is the Hannon’s belief that everyone across the county can learn from their experience. “If we save one life through the film, it will be worth it” They say.

Adding to the campaign’s rapidly growing kudos, The British Association of Communications in Business have also just announced that the Missing Matthew film has been short listed for an award in Category 12 (Video/audio) at this year’s Central Region annual awards ceremony on February 1st.

The film was made for the Lancashire Partnership for Road Safety by award winning film makers ST16 Ltd and can be viewed or downloaded at: www.safe2travel.co.uk
