Survivor 2020 Safer Journeys Expo 2018

Megan Te Amo —

We are proud supporters of the Safer Journeys Expo which is designed to educate young people about safety in and around vehicles and to raise road safety awareness.

About 1700 Year 11 students from across Otago are enrolled to attend the Survivor 2020 Safer Journeys expo, which will be held at the Edgar Centre from 13 - 15 March.

The expo includes a crash scenario and sessions on modified vehicles, speed and environment, alcohol and road safety, and the human cost of road crashes.

Funeral Directors Chaim Cleavin and John Finlayson represented Hope and Sons at this Expo. Our involvement is in the 'human cost' segment of the Expo and gives a brief insight into the procedures and legalities required after someone dies. It also gives the students an idea of all the choices that are left for the family to make when arranging a funeral service. We conclude with a mock funeral service which includes a casket, pallbearers (selected from the students) and service sheets.

Emily Chilton (Graphic Designer) from our Printing and Multimedia Department is in charge of designing and printing a 36 page workbook and the service sheets. This year we printed 1700 workbooks and 1000 Service Sheets.

Hope and Sons are contemporary yet respectful of tradition, being a five generation funeral family caring for the Dunedin, Mosgiel, and Otago communities.
