Lisle International has presented a local school in Leeds with a brand new Variety Sunshine Coach.

The 17-seater Fiat Maxi will help pupils at Broomfield South SILC in Belle Isle, Leeds.

Sharon Crowther, a senior learning support coordinator at the school, said: “It will be invaluable. Our pupils are very excited about having a new minibus and have already been making suggestions for places of interest to visit.”

The Variety Sunshine Coach Programme was established by ‘Variety the Children’s Charity’ in 1962 to provide accessible transport for disabled and disadvantaged children and young people. Over the course of nearly 50 years, Variety has provided thousands of coaches to schools, respite care homes, hospitals, youth projects and hospices across the United Kingdom.

At present the school, which caters to nearly 150 special needs pupils aged 4-19 years over three sites, is fundraising for better outdoor play equipment.
