ASDA feeling fruity over project!

posted on 8 December 2010

Wakefield Wildcats are proud to announce that Asda Superstores in Wakefield will become official partners of the Children in Need project; Give it a TRY, Aim High.

World Cup Final Referee Howard Webb officially opened the Children in Need project in November and the project has already delivered sessions to 20 children from St. Michaels Primary School. During the sessions, children are provided with fruit and water whilst tackling challenges that are presented by Project Leader Dan Hardy.

Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust Manager Davide Longo added “Give it a TRY, Aim High is a fantastic project that uses sport to increase self esteem, learning and promotes healthy lifestyles within a mobile learning facility. We recognise that children are giving up 12 hours of their free time so it’s only right that we provide fruit and water during the sessions. I approached several leading Supermarkets from across the district and Asda were the only ones that came forward to support this project”

In Store Events Coordinator Lisa Staggs added “Asda has been supporting BBC Children in Need for many years, raising over £10 million. We are proud to support a project that is funded by Children in Need and it also continues our partnership with the Wakefield Wildcats”

Give it a TRY, Aim High is in its final couple of weeks at St. Michaels Primary School and will be starting at a new school in January 2011.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
