Ten numeracy champions – from businesses across Bradford, Leeds and Kirklees – attended the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster to build enrichment toys, such as ladders and bridges with feeders attached, for the red pandas who are residents there.

The networking event was part of the Multiply programme being delivered by Realise, one of the UK’s leading training providers, to allow people across West Yorkshire to boost their maths and numeracy skills.

Sarah Birkinshaw, Multiply delivery manager for Realise, said: “It was a fantastic day and really worthwhile to get some of our numeracy champions together for a networking and team building event.

“To be able to build enrichment toys for the red pandas was extremely rewarding for everyone who attended.

“We were deliberately given a looser brief than you would usually expect which meant that we were able to apply the maths and numeracy elements which the Multiply programme focuses on.

“Everyone had a great day and to see the red pandas happily playing with their new toys led to a real sense of pride amongst the group.”
