Representative Mike Halewood from Lord’s Taverners and Georgia Morris, Mary Leneghan, Eileen Fitzgibbon and Sally Walker from the Lady Taverners, came along to the Schools Physical Disability (PD) Boccia Tournament, held at Greenbank Sports Academy on 14th November to present Greenbank with a brand new accessible minibus.
The bus, with its distinctive Lord’s Taverners livery has been donated so that Greenbank can:
- Transport disabled children and young people to and from Greenbank’s facilities; Greenbank College and Greenbank Sports Academy.
- Take children and young people out to places to experience new things for example as part of a school holiday activity programme.
- Offer the bus for Greenbank Sports Academy based clubs to use to transport disabled participants to away games.
Lord’s Taverners Representative Mike Halewood said:
“It was wonderful to visit Greenbank Sports Academy again and to see all the activities going on, including the Schools Physical Disability Boccia Tournament.
As ever, the staff and helpers are an inspiration which is reflected by the smiles on all the children’s’ faces.
We hope that the minibus will help continue the great work going on at Greenbank and assist in allowing the children to experience further opportunities outside of the Academy and give young people a sporting chance.”
Mark Palmer, Sport Development Manager at the Academy added:
“We are really grateful to Lord’s and Lady Taverners for their tireless fundraising, which has made it possible for us to be presented with this fabulous vehicle.
Having accessible, reliable transport is vital for us to be able to continue to offer opportunities for disabled children and young people.”
