SPAR sponsors Lancashire School Games for 17th year running

SPAR has agreed to continue its sponsorship of the Lancashire School Games for a 17th consecutive year.

Organised and run by Active Lancashire and the School Games Organiser Network, the Lancashire School Games will be sponsored by SPAR through its association with James Hall & Co, SPAR UK’s primary wholesaler and distributor for the North of England.

SPAR’s sponsorship extension has coincided with Upholland Roby Mill Primary School being revealed as the winner of an Active Lancashire competition.

The school participated in Active Lancashire’s Active Mile challenge in the autumn as part of the Red Rose County’s Lancashire Day celebrations and won a voucher to spend on sports and activity equipment.

Headteacher Nicola Grand said: “Lancashire School Games participation is vital for our school and pupils to enable them to be fit, active, and foster a love for sport.

“As a small school, large team competitions can be a challenge but through Lancashire School Games activities, everyone can participate, be inspired, and strive to achieve their very best.”

Tom Murphy, marketing manager at James Hall & Co, said: “The SPAR brand internationally has become synonymous with athletics sponsorship, with its longstanding commitment to European Athletics, and here in Lancashire we are equally committed to encouraging skills development and achievement in young people through games, activities and competitions.

“When you see children like those at Upholland Roby Hill Primary School enjoying participation in sports and activities, while building important life skills like teamwork and communication at the same time, it really brings home just what our sponsorship delivers in communities across Lancashire.”
