J & K Ross Ltd donates safety boots to Warrington Collegiate’s Year 10 taster days

Teenagers from across Warrington will be able to try their hand at even more practical activities at Warrington Collegiate this summer, thanks to an incredible donation of safety boots from J & K Ross Ltd.

More than 20 pairs of boots, in various sizes, were donated to the college by the company, which specialises in PPE and health and safety clothing.

The boots will be worn by year 10 students who visit the Winwick Road campus over the summer as part of the college’s taster day programme.

Gemma Webster, School Engagement Manager at Warrington Collegiate, said: “This donation will allow us to offer more spaces on our Year 10 taster day programme in the summer for subjects including the construction trades and motor vehicle.

“These days are invaluable to our prospective students when making informed decisions about their choices at college, paving the way into their future careers.

“The construction and automotive industries offer a huge variety of roles. We work with high schools across the Warrington borough to offer school pupils the chance to try out the many different subjects on offer at the Collegiate.

“All of our workshops are high quality and industry standard. In order for us to make the sessions highly engaging and informative, providing the correct PPE for the school pupils is paramount, so we are extremely grateful to J & K Ross for helping us to make this happen.”
