Leading logistics provider Pall-Ex has teamed up with the Safe 4Kids organisation to promote a safety message to children for their internet related communications.
Pall-Ex has given funding to support this scheme, which recognises that children are naturally inquisitive, and access to communicate with anyone in the world can lead to dangers that even the most safety conscious parents may overlook. The funding from Pall-Ex will be used to create computer games which will inform, educate, and entertain.
To receive the disks, Pall-Ex has nominated Dove Bank Primary School, which is close to the Pall-Ex transhipment hub site, from which Pall-Ex centrally coordinates collections and deliveries of palletised freight.
Recently volunteers from Pall-Ex went to a Dove Bank Primary to assist Year 2 to Year 5 children to learn about jobs and roles people have in the community as part of the Young Enterprise Scheme. Volunteers took a lesson each week for 5 consecutive weeks. Pupils were taught the importance of working together, paying taxes, and the role government has in our society.
This charitable support is part of ongoing support that Pall-Ex pledges. The company founder, CEO, and Chairman Hilary Devey became a patron for another leading charity, The Princess Royal Trust for Carers, in 2007.
