Last weekend Bassetlaw MP John Mann took 24 pupils from Haggonfields Primary School in Rhodesia to watch Liverpool Football Club take on Norwich in the Premier League.
The pupils were the specially invited guests of Standard Chartered Bank and enjoyed first class hospitality in the club’s Number 7 lounge where they were given all the food and drink they could manage to eat.
The pupils all received individual gift bags from Standard Chartered and got front row seats to watch the match.
John Mann MP said “I would like to thank Standard Chartered for their hospitality in offering me the chance to once again bring children from Bassetlaw to Liverpool FC.”
Mann continued “I am passionately committed to doing all I can to ensure that kids from Bassetlaw get to experience world class sporting events and am delighted that the Haggonfield students enjoyed the day.”
“Special thanks also need to go to County Councillor Sybil Fielding who kindly paid for the coach out of her community fund.”
Haggonfields Head Teacher Brian Huxley "For the majority of our pupils, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The children returned to school buzzing in the wake of their experiences. They gained memories that they will treasure. As a staff, we felt particularly proud to receive several compliments from the public about the excellent behaviour of our pupils.”
“On behalf of the whole school community, I would like to thank John Mann and Sybil Fielding for providing this opportunity.”
