New Bus Donation!

Yesterday we were presented with a brand new minibus for our students, courtesy of Joie and VarietyJoie kindly sponsored the new minibus and made it all possible!  David Welsh (Joie Managing Director) and Melissa Cooper (Joie Consumer Marketing Manager) were joined by special celebrity guest Stan Boardman and Variety Representative Lyn Staunton (North West Development Director) to present the new bus to some very appreciative students and staff!

Mike Cooksley, Trustee at Petty Pool said ‘Like many other organisations that provide help and assistance to young people with Special Educational Needs transport is a lifeline that helps provide students with access to a much wider range of activities and experiences. The generosity of Variety, Joie and The Children’s Charity in providing Petty Pool with a state-of-the-art Coach is greatly appreciated and will ensure that our pupils enjoy trips for educational, recreational and vocational experiences.

We would like to thank Variety for their huge gift and look forward to using the Coach for the benefit of our students’.
