A wet Monday morning, but the children of Milton Park School in Portsmouth didn’t mind one bit as they took delivery of a brand new Sunshine Mini Bus.

The shiny blue vehicle was donated by Variety, the Children’s Charity of Great Britain and Sponsored by top hoteliers, DeVere. There was a special guest too. Pongo the skunk, with his ever patient friend, Steve Hewlett, was on hand to create some schooltime fun. John Thompson has our video report.
