Stephen Morris, Managing Director at Solutions SK, comments,

“We launched these learning seminars for schools in 2016 and they’ve been a huge success.  To date, we’ve tackled key issues such as food culture and obesity, funding application skills and now, bullying.  We take our role in the community very seriously.  We view our relationship with our customers as a partnership rather than just a service provision.  Our commitment to providing these seminars helps demonstrate this.”

CEO of event sponsor, UK Containers was highly inspired to support the event, Emma Elston comments,

“We are thrilled to be supporting Solutions SK’s anti-bullying event. As a mum, the safeguarding of children is something that is very close to my heart, as the things they experience at a young age can have a lasting, and sometimes, devastating effect on the rest of their lives.  It was great to see key figureheads from schools in the region coming together and tackling this poignant issue.”
