JB Springs is delighted to announce we are sponsoring the Gargrave Warriors who will take part in the Total Warrior Great Northern Mud Run as they bid to raise £20,000 to invest in technology equipment to enhance learning for pupils at Gargrave Primary School.

The challenge on June 22nd will see Gargrave Warriors, made up of staff, parents and friends, take on 25 gruelling obstacles over 12km,  which include the “Human BBQ”, “The Plunge” and “The Shocker” to name a few!

As with all schools, Gargrave Primary School is facing challenging financial times, with further budget cuts on the horizon. This inevitably means budgets are squeezed more than ever and resources are not being updated. This fundraising will enable pupils to have greater access to technology and up-to-date programs.

Studies have found that when technology is integrated into lessons, students find the learning more enjoyable and fun. This leads to more active participation in the learning process, which is turn increases knowledge retention.

JB Springs has donated the team’s training kit and if you would like to donate you can do so on their Just Giving page at
