A SPECIAL mascot challenge was one of the highlights of Warrington Town’s popular half term multi-sport and soccer camps which have been hailed a great success. Run by the club's community development officer James Standing and supported by the club’s community partner United Utilities, the week long event saw the delivery of football, rugby league, handball, basketball and cricket
During the camp youngsters were were joined by three very familiar faces from across the town
-Warrington Town mascot Ollie the Owl from Warrington Disability Partnership, Warrington Wolves’ Wolfie and Gulliver’s World’s Gully mouse all took part in a mascot challenge.
Gully mouse came out on top winning two out of three races, Ollie won one race while poor Wolfie(pictured right)failed to win a single competition!
James said: “It was great to see Ollie, Wolfie and Gully taking part in the day’s events and after the way Gully played football in the team tournament in the end, I believe ourfirst team manager Shaun Reid should be looking to sign him on!”
The week saw more than 40 children come through the club’s Abacus Solicitors' Community Stadium home and each participant went home with a certificate and a goodie bag, including a United Utilities water bottle, tickets to Gulliver’s World and a Warrington Town season ticket.
James added: “Our community partners and sponsors have been great this season and without them, we would not be able to offer this excellent service to schools and families throughout the year. Our camps run every half term and summer for boys and girls and are one of the most affordable in Warrington. We have had a number of great comments from parents and guardians.”
The club have reached out to over 2,000 children in 2012 through it’s community programme working in local primary schools providing after school club provisions and educational aid to youngsters from reception to year 6 children.
