Three-times Olympic gold medallist Ben Ainslie will be the first person to carry the Olympic torch in the UK when it begins its 70 day journey on 19th May. The torch will travel 8,000 miles in total, starting from Land’s End and passing through 1018 cities, towns and villages before finally reaching the Olympic Stadium on 27th July.
VWA will be charting the progress of the Olympic torch by offering delegates 10% off all courses booked on the day that the torch is in your area. For example, if your company is based in Liverpool and you make your booking on 1st June, you’ll receive 10% off the normal price.
If the torch is in your locality on a weekend or bank holiday, simply book online or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your booking and get your 10% discount.
The discount applies to all food safety, nutrition, HACCP or specialist courses taking place either in-house or at our training facility in Skipton, North Yorkshire, at any time this year.
