Bracelets to reduce number of lost kids at ASB Night Glow

Bracelets to reduce number of lost kids at 2014 ASB Night Glow

Lodge Real Estate and Balloons over Waikato event organisers are making it easy to keep kids safe at this year’s ASB Nightglow at Waikato University with Lodge Lost Kids bracelets.

Balloons over Waikato event organiser Michele Connell said the bracelets are designed to help parents and caregivers readily find their children should they become separated during the event.

“The ASB Night Glow at Waikato University continues to attract more than 80,000 spectators. Unfortunately with a crowd that size, we inevitably have children trying to find their caregivers during the evening,” Michele said.

“Lodge Real Estate is this year helping us minimise this risk by sponsoring the Lodge Lost Kids bracelets.”

St Peter's Sea Scouts dressed in red Lodge Lost Kid's uniforms will hand the bracelets out to parents and caregivers upon arrival at the event.

Alternatively, people can pick up bracelets ahead of the event at any of the eight Lodge Real Estate offices throughout Hamilton or at the information tent at Innes Common during Balloons Over Waikato between 26 - 30 March.

“Parent or caregiver’s write their phone number on their child’s bracelet. If children are separated from their parent or caregiver, they can meet at the Lodge Lost Kids assembly point where parents are contacted,” Michelle said.

Lodge Real Estate’s managing director, Jeremy O’Rourke said Lodge is proud to support children’s safety at one of Waikato’s most renowned events.

“As with any large event, we recognise that spectator safety is top priority. We’re confident that this initiative will result in increased security and therefore increased enjoyment for families,” he said.
