Schools up and down the country have turned to furniture hire companies to help put on a bumper sporting event in the summer term this year, in celebration of what looks set to be the biggest British summer of sport ever. With school sports days still very popular, many schools are going much bigger this year to celebrate the Olympics coming to the UK, and are planning events a little bigger than normal.
This summer will of course see the Olympic Games come to the UK, as well as being the Queens diamond jubilee year. On top of that the England cricket team will be trying to hang on to their World Number One status in their five home test matches this summer. Add to that the usual Wimbledon festivities and you’ve got one of the biggest summers of sport ever.
With many schools putting on events at the weekend so they can get as many parents to attend as possible, they’re going to need extra seating and that’s never been a problem for companies like Online Furniture Hire. With events in honour of the Olympics, as well as other schools celebrating the Diamond Jubilee there will be events all over the place this summer and getting them booked in people’s diaries is essential.
Schools are able to turn to the furniture hire companies for as much extra seating as they need, and the company can deliver as many chairs as they need on the morning of the event, before picking them up the following day.
The school only has to pay to hire the chairs for the time they have them, so barely spends any money at all, but can put on a fantastic sporting event with seating for all the parents and family who want to attend.
With foldaway tables also available for stalls, a raffle, a tombola and for catering purposes schools can really put on a fundraising sporting extravaganza, and raise precious funds for the school’s PTA committee, as well as putting on a fantastic show in honour of this summer’s special sporting feel.
