THE sun shone brightly over Bolton Arena as more than 600 people attended a special fun day.

The annual event, arranged by Stateside Foods, provided free food and entertainment to all members of staff, their families and friends.

The day saw youngsters enjoy face painting, football, trampolines, and climbing walls while the older children battled it out in the ‘Meltdown’ inflatable and clay pigeon shooting.

The company has recently developed a strong working relationship with the USN Bolton Arena after becoming one of its local sponsors in April last year.

Lynne Cawthorn, new product development manager, said: “The fun day is a great opportunity for staff to bring their families together, take a break from work and have some fun, and we did have fun. It was a lovely day.”

Stateside Foods are sponsoring Business of the Year in the Bolton and Bury BusinessAwards 2014.
