Veggie Run feast of prizes

Category: Community 11

Havering Council awarded 15 lucky pupils with amazing prizes this week after they successfully won Veggie Run competitions.

Winning pupils from Benhurst Primary and Squirrels Heath Schools received either a signed West Ham United football or West Ham United shirt after eating a healthy school-catered lunch provided by HES Catering Service.

An outstanding Veggie Run app player from Crowlands Primary received a spectacular prize of two tickets to see West Ham United vs. Fulham in the new year.

Other lucky pupils won new bikes and helmets or a £25 West Ham United Foundation Soccer schools voucher. All competitions aimed to encourage healthy eating in schools or for children to engage in playing the Council devised Veggie Run app, where they learn to dodge unhealthy foods and win points, with the top scorers winning prizes.

Councillor Robert Benham, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, Learning and Education, said:

“I am proud that through the Council’s unique partnership with the West Ham United Foundation we can award so many lucky pupils with amazing prizes.

“HES Catering services is passionate about providing pupils with a healthy school-catered lunch in Havering, and I thank all the children for participating in the recent Veggie Run competitions.

“In the new year Veggie Run will also be partnering with Stubbers Outdoor Centre to award schools and pupils with a range of exciting sporty prizes.”
