Wolves and Enterprise Students Fuse in Business
Peter Jones Enterprise Academy students turned The Halliwell Jones Stadium into a buzzing market place with their Infuse Festival last month.
The home of the Wolves hosted the business event highlighting the strong partnership between the club and Warrington Business School, where the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy is based.
A range of market stalls lined the concourses as local businesses promoted their ventures from cake and food stalls to crafts and gardening there was something for everyone.
Workshops were held throughout the day to offer guidance in the business world and the children were entertained with sports activities, a skate park and bouncy castle.
Everyone's favourite mascot Wolfie also made an appearance in the afternoon along with many local aspiring artists to create an event atmosphere with their music.
Andy Gatcliffe, Wolves' chief executive, said: "On behalf of all at Warrington Wolves I would like to congratulate the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy students on hosting such a successful event. Here at the Wolves we pride ourselves on being at the heart of the local community and fully support aspiring young people in the world of business. The students involved in the Infuse Festival proved their skill-set through marketing, co-ordinating and hosting this event and the community showed their support in hiring stalls and turning up in numbers on the day. The stadium and club continue to be at the forefront; always looking for new initiatives to get involved with."
Roger Grogan, of the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, added: "This course is set up to give people an insight into what it takes to be successful in the business world. My students have run this project to raise money for a local charity and at the same time have gained a unique insight into what it takes to succeed in running a business, or being a part of a successful business. The group are in the national finals for all academies and we find out next week, when they meet Peter Jones himself, if they have won with the work they have done."
