Arriva gets arty in Altrincham

Wythenshaw Arts

Arriva’s Wythenshaw garage has once again proudly sponsored a local school’s annual art competition.

The garage provided the prizes, in the form of Love2Shop vouchers, for winners and runners-up for each year group at the Altrincham College of Arts competition on April 30.

“We have worked with the college for a number of years, having made a donation to them when they went for academy status. Ever since then, the garage has sponsored the annual competition,” said general manager Ben Jarvis.

This year, operations manager John Farrugia attended the event to judge and present the awards to the talented winners.

Top prize went to budding young artist Ronan Rai.

Ben added: “We are really enjoying being part of the competition and getting involved with the local school’s activities.

“We run a number of school bus services for them and have built a good working relationship with the school and the headmaster over the years.

“I think it is important to continue our partnership with Altrincham College into the future.”
