Safety Paramount As Students Make More Use Of Cycles To Get To College

Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College students - George Kavanagh, Ben Cain, Noah Lewis, Harrison Tasker and Tobias Joseph  - will all make good use of their free bicycle lights donated by Engie as the environmentally-conscious students cycle to the college each day throughout the winter months.

Environmentally-conscious students at Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College have received free cycle lights to get them safely through the winter months.

An increasing number of students now cycle to and from the college each day, so much so that staff have had to install extra bike sheds to cope with demand.

Now leading regeneration firm Engie has donated free cycle lights to every student who wants them to ensure they remain as safe as possible on the roads this winter.

College Head Simon Ritchie thanked Engie for their support. “We have so many students using their bicycles this year, which is fantastic for the environment. However, now that the dark nights are here we are very conscious of making sure that our students are as safe as possible on the busy roads, especially when they are leaving the college each afternoon.”
