Bus ticket campaign drives home CO safety

There’s a potentially life-saving special offer on buses in West Yorkshire this Christmas. The Dominic Rodgers Trust has teamed up with CO alarm manufacturer Safelincs to offer travellers 10 per cent off an alarm.

Travellers will see the details of the offer on the back of First bus tickets across Huddersfield, Halifax, and Leeds this month (December).

Safelincs MD Harry Dewick-Eisele says: “We are very pleased to be able to support the Dominic Rodgers Trust in spreading the word about the dangers of CO poisoning.”

The Dominic Rodgers Trust was founded by Huddersfield campaigner Stacey Rodgers, after the death of her 10-year-old son Dominic in 2004.  Dominic died from CO poisoning when the deadly gas seeped into his bedroom from a faulty boiler into his bedroom. Since then, the charity has worked tirelessly across Yorkshire and the UK to improve awareness of the dangers of CO.

Stacey says: “We have come a long way since the day I decided to start campaigning after the death of Dominic. We are always looking for new ways to raise awareness, and we’re really pleased to be reaching out to almost 1.5 million people using their bus tickets.

“I didn’t think it would be possible at first but we were able to with the help of Northern Gas Networks, which had set up the Community Promises Fund to support local projects.”
