Beano Chair's In Wythenshaw

on Sunday, 13 July 2014. Posted in News

The team have just been over to the Haveley Hey School in Wythenshaw in Manchester to run some up-cycling workshops as part of their 'World of Work Week'. Over 90 children took part and everyone involved thought it a great success.

Following a visit from Charlie Topaz, the Business Connector for Wythensahw, to our Skelmersdale operation, an opportunity arosefor us to get involved in a project with a local school. Team Leader Paul Bragger said: "We ran sessions last year for 75 kids in West Lancashire and it was nice to be given the opportunity to spread our ethos to the wider community"

Extended Learning Coordinator, Carolyne Evans organised three sessions for 60 children aged 6-7 and 30 aged 7-11. In an email to Director and Founder of Total Reuse, Martin Gamester, Carolyne said:

"I would like to thank you and your team for coming to our school and sharing the great work that you do. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and the staff did too! 

The chairs look amazing and will be put around the school in the reading areas in our classrooms.

Please say a massive thank to the lads that came, they were great with the kids and I hope they enjoyed themselves too".

Carlie Topaz managed to get to the event and sent the following message: "A huge thank you to you and your colleagues attending the school on Wednesday, it was a great success! I spoke with the students and teachers yesterday and they were all very pleased with the sessions. It would also be useful to hear any feedback from you on the event and interest in running additional sessions in the future with other schools".
