Boo! Scream if you want to save lives! Seriously, we'll train you to electrocute, run over and set fire to our visitors. It'll be virtual fun all in the name of safety. Remember, we scare because we care. Absafe is a local Aberdeen based charity. We teach kids about personal safety, but we need your help for them to learn. ‘The Safe’ is safety education, personal development and community engagement all wrapped up in one fantastic, fun filled package. At the Safe, we make safety fun. Using interactive education we have created a safety funfair to make learning safety and risk assessment an experience to remember. Through simulation, we will run them over with cars, squash them with trains and electrocute them. We set fire to the rooms they walk in, stalk them online and fleece them out of a great deal of money. For further details please contact: E Mail: hello@absafe.org.uk tel.: 01224 823157
