The big friendly firm has partnered up with the Roald Dahl Literary Estate to offer one lucky teacher a splendiferous opportunity to take up to 70 of their pupils on a phizz-whizzing trip to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Buckinghamshire.

The competition has been organised to celebrate the 100th birthday of the world’s number one storyteller on September 13. It marks YPO’s sole sponsorship of Roald Dahl Day in schools across the UK. The company, on 41 Industrial Park, sells a swashboggling range of Roald Dahl resources, including character costumes, a ‘Read and Respond’ series, art and craft supplies, gloriumptious games and activity sets. YPO is also the sponsor of 23,000 Roald Dahl 100 Party Packs being sent out to schools across the country.

Jo Marshall, commercial director, said: “As sole sponsors, it’s an exciting partnership for us and we’ve got some great resources for schools to help them throw the best Roald Dahl Day parties ever.”
