New accessible minibus for Cumbria youngsters
Another week, another accessible minibus hits the road! On Tuesday the Bendrigg Trust received a brand new bus which will help to better enable their young people to benefit from residential trips and other adventures in and around Cumbria.
It's the 40th anniversary of the Lord's Taverners donating accessible minibuses, with the Bendrigg Trust one of 40 schools and organisations benefitting this year.
Bendrigg Trust's mission is to challenge perceptions of disabled and disadvantaged people. This includes other people’s perceptions of people with disabilities, and the person’s own perceptions about what they think they can or can’t do. They do this through a variety of residential and adventure-based activities which promote independence, encourage inclusion and increase self-esteem.
Sarah Garman, Fundraising and Marketing Officer for Bendrigg Trust said: "Thank you to Lord's Taverners for the minibus and coming to visit, we will certainly be off on many adventures over the coming years!"
An accessible minibus is a crucial part of their charitable mission, a crucial component in enabling more young people to get out and about, and get active in the local community.
