Planet Leasing sponsors SHSG's bench coats
The cross country team from Southend High School for Girls were fully prepared for the cold weather elements at the recent Essex Schools’ Championships after kindly being sponsored by Planet Leasing from Leigh-on-Sea with 12 new branded “bench” coats.
Keeping warm and conserving all their energies for the race certainly paid off as the year 7 team of Sophia R, Amelia B, Darcy D and Jessica M took the bronze medals and not to be outdone the year 8 team of Jessica B, Daisy W, Aisling W and Lydia S took the silver medals.
The Physical Education department would like to express their sincere thanks to Planet Leasing for their very kind and generous sponsorship.
Gary Rose, Director said “After watching the SHSG year 7 and year 8 running squads struggling to keep warm before and after the race made the sponsorship a very easy decision and wouldn’t only make the girls feel part of the same team but make them look the part too! The school will always welcome donations and I was privileged to have been extended the opportunity to assist on this occasion. The SHSG PE department should be commended on their continued hard work and efforts before, during and after school where they work tirelessly in preparing the athletes for their next competition, well done ladies!”
