Have your say

BUSINESSES are invited to back charitable partnership The Blue Lamp Trust in Hampshire.

Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, local businesses and the communities of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight work together in the trust to reduce crime and the fear of crime.

It also promotes improved driving standards and road safety and provides education on all aspects of fire safety and fire prevention.

Businesses are invited to join by making a charitable donation, of £500 or £2,500 a year pf £25,000 for five years.

Those who join will receive benefits including involvement in a driver awareness scheme, which is currently used to improve the skills of those who have been involved in minor speeding offences.

A spokesman said: ‘Additionally, they could utilise driver training sessions with experienced police trainers, either on the road, or, in a simulator.’
