School Bowled Over by Faithful+Gould

Dale Potts
Faithful+Gould went back to school recently to help Hodge Hill School in Hodge Hill make their annual Fun Day a success, as part of a Business in the Community ‘Cares’ activity.

A team of 10 staff spent the afternoon with 80 primary school children and 15 year ten pupils in a cricket tournament aimed at encouraging children to get involved with sport. The Faithful+Gould employees each captained teams of eight helping the students to understand the ethos of team working.

Commenting, Phil Stevens from Faithful+Gould said: "We had a great time with the children from Hodge Hill, they really got stuck into the competition and demonstrated plenty of team spirit."

Andrew Davis, also from Faithful+Gould, continued: "We're always pleased to help out with local community events and Hodge Hill made us feel very welcome and appreciated our support."

At the end of the day, the team captains presented trophies to the winning teams.

Karen Eastwood, teacher at Hodge Hill who organised the day, added: "The day was a real success and the pupils enjoyed Faithful+Gould’s encouragement. It's great to have extra hands when running an afternoon such as this, as it provides the children with an enjoyable and energetic way to practice teamwork and also encourages them to get into different sports."
