Winners of Bee Hotel competition meet Boothy

- Winners of Bee Hotel competition in partnership with HTAFC and Syngenta
- School pupils get a trip to RHS Harlow Carr
- Comments from Town legend Andy Booth

Children from Orchard Academy School enjoyed a trip to RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate as a prize for winning Huddersfield Town’s ‘Bee Hotel 100 Challenge’, held in association with Syngenta.
Over 40 children and staff were treated to full day’s experience around the award-winning gardens, which also included a woodland explorer’s adventure and an educational workshop. Coach travel was kindly provided by Stotts Coaches.

As part of the HTAFC School Partnership scheme with Syngenta, schools were tasked with designing and creating a flowering habitat where pollinating insects can feed off flowering plants – with a theme of 100 years to celebrate Syngenta’s history!

15 schools entered the competition and all involved will receive tickets to a Huddersfield Town’s Sky Bet Championship Home League game.

HTAFC Club Ambassador Andy Booth, who joined the children at Harlow Carr, commented:

“The project with Syngenta has really enhanced our Schools Partnership scheme and I would like to thank all who made the day possible, not forgetting Stotts Coaches.

“It was a real pleasure to host the proud winners, Orchard Academy who were so excited to be at Harlow Carr.

"If your school isn’t part of our free scheme, I’d urge you to get in touch and sign up today.”

Carl Sykes, Community Partnerships Manager at Syngenta, added:

”This is our second year as Schools Partner with Huddersfield Town and the Bee Hotel 100 Challenge has captured the imagination of school children, building habitats for pollinating insects. The prizes are always well received and there are certainly benefits to local schools in becoming a HTAFC Schools Partner."
