Ware youngsters benefit from new Lord's Taverners minibus
Representatives of the Lord’s Taverners were in Ware, Hertfordshire, this week (18 July) to present staff and pupils at Middleton School with a new Lord’s Taverners specially adapted minibus.
Since 1976, the Lord’s Taverners has placed over 1,150 accessible minibuses across schools in the UK. The iconic Lord’s Taverners minibuses provide disadvantaged and disabled young people with the chance to engage with their local community by getting more access to the facilities on offer and build important life skills in the process.
Middleton School is a primary school catering for 87 young people aged 4-11 with special educational and complex needs. The new 15-seat minibus will enable staff to transport pupils to activities in the local community during and after the school day. These include swimming, horse-riding, educational visits, days out, festivals and after school clubs.
Middleton School Headteacher, Donna Jolly, said: "Minibuses enable our pupils to go out and about in the community to all sorts of events; this is so important for them. We are really grateful to The Lord's Taverners for our lovely new green bus which will help us to provide these opportunities for all of our pupils"
