Staff and pupils at Perseid School in Morden were delighted to receive a new Variety Sunshine Coach to replace their old minibus that was destroyed by fire last year.

The coach, which is sponsored by Richard Cook Limited, was presented by Henry Cook and Simon Williams to Headteacher Tina Harvey. The pupils of Perseid were represented by Headboy Jordan and Headgirl Rozan who gave the sponsors a school tour after the coach presentation.

Perseid is a community special educational needs school that provides for 120 pupils, aged 3 – 19 years. This new coach will be used every day to give pupils access to out of school activities to enhance the curriculum, e.g. for swimming lessons, riding and local trips to parks, shops. It will also enable pupils to take part in competitions and residential trips.

Henry Cook commented:

Richard Cook Limited has supported Variety for more than 25 years. It is with great pleasure that we are continuing to support the charity through sponsorship of the Perseid School coach which will enable the pupils to have a much greater access to outside activities thus expanding their boundaries and interests
