Mary Rose School, Hampshire to benefit from Lord's Taverners minibus
Representatives of the Lord’s Taverners were in Southsea, Hampshire on Friday 14 November to present a new wheelchair accessible minibus to staff and young people at Mary Rose School.
Mary Rose School is a community special school and specialist sports college for 125 pupils aged 2-19. All the school’s pupils have a statement of special educational need. Many have severe and complex learning disabilities while some have additional needs associated with physical disabilities, autistic spectrum disorder and medical conditions.
The new 16-seat minibus from the Lord’s Taverners, costing £53,000, will allow the Mary Rose pupils to have regular access to local amenities such as the swimming pool and outdoor adventurous activities, while also enabling them to become more familiar with the local area.
Paul Robin, chief executive of the Lord’s Taverners, said: “The Lord's Taverners believes that sport and recreation are essential for all young people, regardless of ability or background. This minibus will help the Mary Rose pupils to get out and enjoy new places and experiences. We are proud to support the staff, parents and young people of Mary Rose School.”
