Suzy Lamplugh Award
eudo had a great year in 2010 increasing the amount of classes held to ensure as many people as possible who wanted to learn self protection could. But aside from this, a class run at Wiltshire college by Nick, was recognised by the Suzy Lamplugh Trust with the Safer Schools Award.
The Trust’s National Personal Safety Awards celebrate the work being done across the UK to keep people safe from violence and aggression in its efforts to make young adults aware of the risks and dangers people can face when alone or with strangers.
Nick Lowe, the founder of eudo a judo and self defence business has been working with all four Wiltshire College campuses, Trowbridge, Chippenham, Lackham and Salisbury to help promote personal safety to its students. Wiltshire College has now been recognised by the Suzy Lamplugh Trust for its efforts to help raise the awareness of its students to the dangers faced when out and about.
“The Suzy Lamplugh Trust is a fantastic organisation that helps to promote the personal safety of young people who are often unaware of dangerous scenarios they could easily find themselves in.
I have been working with Wiltshire College for 9 years to help raise this awareness in its students and ensure they are confident within situations they find themselves.
The kind of programme we teach the students is scenario based with a mix of mind and muscle, endorsing protection, through awareness, as a pre-cursor to adapting any physical strategy”, commented Nick Lowe.
