Weir Insurance Sponsor St Mary's Primary School's '500-Mile Challenge'

The Staff and Pupils of St Mary’s Primary School Will be Taking Part in an Epic 500-Mile Walking Challenge this June, with the Support of Weir Insurance

On the 7th June, St Mary’s Primary School will be heading off to the Rising Sun Country Park for their sponsored ‘500 Mile Challenge’ for a day packed full of walking, exploring nature and team building.

They hope to raise money for bikes and sports equipment to support the school’s bid for Healthy School Status and to offer long-term health benefits for the school’s pupils.

During the day, everyone will join in – including the staff and governors of the school – to walk an accumulative 500 miles throughout the day, with different activities including sensory walks, geocaching, digital records and map-reading; all rounded off with a picnic on the country park’s grounds.

Weir Insurance is sponsoring the school by covering the cost of the event so that all the sponsor money they raise can be used for the school’s “Cyclescheme”.

Weir staff will also be walking to support everyone on the day itself.

Karen Weir, Managing Director of Weir Insurance tells us, “We’re hugely proud to support the children and staff at St Mary’s for their outstanding efforts towards raising funds for their school. Providing the facilities to support the health and wellbeing of our younger generations is so important, as well as encouraging them to get outdoors and explore nature.

With our own business fitness campaign on the go, we know the importance of getting your health foundations right to thrive, whether that be of you personally, or your business. We wish everyone at St Mary’s Primary School the best of luck on the day and the team at Weir will be there to cheer them along.”
