Seashell Trust back on the road with their new minibus
We headed to Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire last week (14 July) to present staff and pupils at Seashell Trust with a new wheelchair accessible minibus.
Seashell Trust specialises in providing education and care to over 120 children and young people aged 2-25 with the most complex neuro-disabilities/needs in society, including children with a combination of deafness, blindness, autism and profound physical and multiple learning difficulties.
The new 16-seat wheelchair accessible minibus will enable the Trust’s young people to access educational, sporting and social opportunities, just as their non-disabled peers do. This includes work experience placements, leisure trips to places such as Cheshire Zoo, Blackpool and the Trafford Centre as well as visits to the local sporting facilities on offer.
Dominic Tinner, Head of Fundraising at Seashell Trust, said: “As a number of the children and young people live with us all year round, the minibuses are in constant use and provide a vital lifeline to our local community. Without them they would miss out on the opportunities other children take for granted. The latest incarnation of their famous green minibus is spacious, airy, fully accessible and a treat to drive.”
