Kelsey and Arena Owl join new school celebrations

Kelsey and Arena Owl join new school celebrations

Arena Owl joined a students’ Fun Run on in June to celebrate the opening of the new Southgate School for children with complex needs in Almondbury. 

Being a part of the school’s combined celebration and fundraiser was the brainchild of account manager, Kelsey Wilkinson. Kelsey has recently supported the school upgrade their previous copy and print equipment to reflect their expanding needs and to help improve efficiencies in the school, freeing up time and funds for more pupil enriching activities.

The Fun Run and preceding 10k walk from the original Lydgate site to the new Southgate premises also raised money for exciting additional resources such as a collection of bicycles, bike track and sensory equipment. The sponsorship Kelsey and Arena Owl raises will be matched by Arena’s board of directors. Kelsey and Arena Owl joined all of the runners crossing the finish line into Southgate School and took part in the school’s Open Day.

Kelsey explains, “I’ve been working with Josephine, Southgate’s school business manager, in the run up to the move. Seeing the plans unfold for this amazing new school has been exciting. So getting Arena Owl to come along, meet the children, and raise some money had to happen, as I know the children will be made up by a new bike track and equipment.”
