Organised and run by Active Lancashire and the School Games Organiser Network, the SPAR Lancashire School Games will be sponsored for a 17th consecutive year by James Hall & Co. Ltd, SPAR UK’s primary wholesaler and distributor for the North of England.
In 2022-23, Active Lancashire will continue to provide events within the SPAR Lancashire School Games that will help young people recover from the effects of the pandemic while supporting those who may have been impacted the most.
SPAR’s sponsorship extension of the Lancashire School Games for another year has coincided with Upholland Roby Mill Primary School being revealed as the winner of an Active Lancashire competition.
Tom Murphy, Marketing Manager at James Hall & Co. Ltd, said: “We are very pleased to continue our partnership with Active Lancashire and our sponsorship of the SPAR Lancashire School Games.
“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.”
