Behind the scenes at Xamax Clothing for Be Safe Be Seen!

Ridings FM and clothing manufacturer Xamax have teamed up to give away 3,000 hi visibility waistcoats to every primary school throughout Wakefield. Putting road safety firmly on the agenda, the campaign has been launched to help young pupils be safe and seen, while walking to and from school during the winter months.

All of the waistcoats donated will be individually branded with the logos from each school. But what’s involved in transferring the logos onto the material of the waistcoats?

Ridings FM's John Tolson followed the process from design through to manufacturing in the company of Xamax’s Managing Director Graham Thompson and his team. He also discovered what the company’s motivation was behind the launch of the campaign.

Don’t forget to enter the competition to win 100 of the hi vis waistcoats for your school. There’ll only be three winning schools from outside of the Wakefield area, so make sure you enter to be in with a chance!
