Red Monkey’s sponsorship helps children cross the line!

Posted on: November 17th, 2017 by Alex Stone No Comments

We are pleased to have sponsored the Oadby and Wigston Primary Schools Cross Country League for the second year running. Red Monkey donated £200 to the event which has enabled the league to buy trophies and medals for the children participating.

The Oadby and Wigston Primary Schools Cross Country League is designed to be fun, innovative and challenging for children aged 7 to 12, with the league being competitive, yet supportive to all athletes. The 2017 league consisted of three races that took place at Wigston Academy, in Leicester on September 14th, October 5th and November 9th.

Sam Conlon, Headteacher at Glenmere Primary School who organises the event commented, “The Oadby and Wigston  Primary Schools Cross Country League was set up in 2016 and over the last two years it has really grown. The feedback from schools and parents about the league has been so positive and it was great to see so many children from different schools in the area competing and winning their races, and a variety of schools having success in the team awards.”

“The support from Red Monkey has been amazing as it has helped us provide end of season trophies for the event,” said Sam, “With Red Monkey’s continued support we are able to make it a real success and send home very happy children and proud parents, who left with their trophies.”

We had already developed a relationship with Sam from sponsoring the Cross-Country League last year, and Managing Director, Simon Winfield, was delighted to be able to provide the trophies for this year’s event. 24 trophies and medals were provided by Red Monkey for 8 different age groups who entered the league.

Simon Winfield explained, “We were extremely proud to sponsor the Oadby and Wigston Primary Schools Cross Country League by donating the trophies. We love getting involved with our local community and this event really helps with children’s development and keeping them active.”
