AR presents their 56th Variety Sunshine Coach

The Sunshine Coach for Dame Ellen Pinsent was generously donated by Accessible Retail and is the 56th coach sponsored by the Variety longstanding supporter.

We are delighted that the pupils of Dame Ellen Pinsent School have received their new Sunshine Coach, thanks to the generosity of Accessible Retail.

Denise Fountain, Head Teacher, Dame Ellen Pinsent School said

We are so excited to have received our new minibus. This will really help more children to access activities and learning opportunities in their local communities outside of school. Such visits are invaluable to our children who have learning disabilities, enabling to them to contextualize their learning and show it in real life situations and environments. Many thanks to all those that have fund raised for the bus and particularly the generosity of Accessible Retail.
