The Active Schools Conference will take place at Oldham Event Centre, (Boundary Park) in May this year. This full day conference has been facilitated by Dream Big Sports to celebrate the work in education to increase healthy and active lifestyles amongst our younger generation.
However, this event would not be able to go ahead without the support of a number of different organisations from exhibitors to our sponsors and this blog is a ‘spotlight’ and a thank you to our headline sponsor for the event; Everlast Facilities Management.
Everlast FM’ are a local organisation that forms part of the Everlast Group. As an organisation, their mission is to responsibly deliver a quality service by creating a successful partnership with their customers, opportunity for their people, and sustainable growth.
Headed up by Vinnie O’Connor the Facilities Management arm in particular have a keen interest in our local area, being from Oldham and more recently relocating his office to the town.
The team at Everlast FM (EFM) pride themselves on being able to deliver total asset management, reactive and planned maintenance, small works and specialist projects.
Members of #TeamDreamBIG recently caught up with Vinnie to find out why they have decided to get involved with the Active Schools Conference 2019…
“Everlast Facilities Management recognises the positive social impact our business and other like-minded businesses can have within communities we work in. Aa s new local business that has recently moved into Hollinwood, Oldham we value our work in the education sector, with schools in particular, and we are keen to add value to our offering. I was proud to have the opportunity to relocate my office to Oldham recently having grown up in the town and now we are looking to invest in the local area.
At Everlast Facilities Management we actively encourage our employees to be active and lead healthy lifestyles. We emphasise the value of health as much as we do safety so when you see health and safety posters on one of our sites, you will see a commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, it is this aspect of the business and employee wellbeing that has led me to want to contribute to an active community and where better place for us to start locally than by reinvesting to help local schools make local children more active and healthier, to give them the best start and chance of being successful. After all, they are our next generation of employees and business leaders.
We are proud to be supporting a local organisation in Dream Big Sports with their work in creating a healthy and active community and believe sport really can promote the lifestyle we want young people to lead. Thus, the main reason we are proudly supporting this year's Active Schools Conference.”
Dream Big Sports Director, Dale Harris commented:
“Partnerships are crucial in any business and working sector, no more so in ours in sport and physical education. This is our second cross sector partnership in the last six months with the last being to help launch our physical literacy packs.
To be able to offer this special event to local schools an education professionals free of charge is fantastic but it would not be able to go ahead without the generosity and support of Vinnie and the team at Everlast FM.
Thank you to Vinnie and the whole team, I am looking forward to working closely with them for this conference and more ventures in the future.”
