Huddersfield Town FC and Syngenta Celebrate Schools partnership with staff


Huddersfield Town FC are enjoying life in the Premier League and in recognition of their 3 year schools partnership with Syngenta, Huddersfield Town’s ambassador Andy Booth visited the site to give Syngenta staff the opportunity to lift the Championship play-off trophy for themselves.

The partnership has so far delivered two ‘Bee Hotel’ Projects into local primary schools, highlighting the importance of pollinating insects to our food security and has also supported the club’s Schools Focus initiative, which saw tickets sales triple in the 2016/2017 season to 9,000.

Carl Sykes for Syngenta said “It was a real treat for Andy to visit our site and bring the trophy along. As well as being a Premier League club, it shows that there remains a community focus to the club that the town can be proud of. Through our Bee Hotel projects, we have been able to work with schools in a way that excites children about both biodiversity and sport. One of many examples we saw was a Bee Hotel designed in the style of a football stadium and another was in the design of a tractor.”
