Crompton Primary School in Oldham hosted a sports day with a difference on Friday as it was sponsored by drinks producer Perfectly Clear.
The Shaw school’s sports day acknowledged England’s success in the 2018 World Cup by naming teams after this year’s football quarter finalist nations and the penalty shoot-out proved to be hugely popular, alongside a range of sports from basketball to hockey and, of course, the traditional egg and spoon race.
Perfectly Clear donated £150 to the school to be spent on a range of sports equipment, alongside donating bottles of its still flavoured water, providing tasty hydration to the children and their parents throughout the day.
Perfectly Clear, one of the first flavoured water brands to be produced in the UK, is encouraging children across the nation to get active and keep hydrated by sponsoring their school sports days. This includes Crompton Primary School in Manchester, who recently held their annual sports day with the support of Perfectly Clear.
To celebrate the winning team, Perfectly Clear also provided medals for each child and a trophy for the winning team, alongside recycling bins to encourage everyone to recycle all empty bottles consumed on the sports day.
Headteacher Lara Beaumont commented: “We were delighted that Perfectly Clear sponsored our sports day and helped to make the day such a success. The donation of £150 was really helpful and it will be invested on new sports equipment for our school which we can use all year round. The donated water kept the children and their parents hydrated throughout the afternoon. What’s more, as an Eco School, the bottle recycling bin will improve our recycling efforts.”
Speaking on sponsoring the sports day, Katerina Gilbert, Marketing Director at Perfectly Clear, said: “At Perfectly Clear, we believe in healthy hydration and so we make sure all our flavoured water products contain zero sugar and they taste delicious, making them an ideal drink for an active day! Supporting the local community and influencing children (and adults) to be physically active while keeping hydrated is in important part of our social responsibility strategy for Perfectly Clear.
“Sponsoring local primary schools’ sports days across the country has been so much fun and seeing the kids joining in and having fun with sports is the ideal way to wrap up the school year on a positive note. We are pleased the children at Crompton Primary School had a great day and we look forward to supporting other sports days in the future.”
Perfectly Clear is also sponsoring sports days in Nottingham, Newcastle, Yorkshire and Brighton this summer.
