Charity presses for cycle helmets
Cycle helmet
The charity says it will not give up lobbying for helmets
A Jersey charity says it will continue to lobby States members to make cycle helmets compulsory for children.

The charity Headway helps people with brain and head injuries and is one of 100 charities who have been given a Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

It hopes the award will help raise Headway's profile in the community and put pressure on the States to make it compulsory to wear cycle helmets.

Andrew Green from the charity says he will continue to lobby for the law.

He said: "We've asked the Home Affairs Committee on two occasions now and they've declined to support it.

"We've asked Health and Social Services and they've declined, but we're not going to give up."
