Students from Kingston Maurward College’s Foundation Learning Academy are the proud recipients of three purpose built off road tricycles specially designed for people with disabilities and mobility issues. These Viking trikes will allow less mobile students to join other students in cycling during lessons and free time.

To fund the trikes, innovative teaching assistant, Lucy Wyman received a £2,000 grant from Variety.

Variety Chair for the Wessex region, Frances Cornelius, said:

“We are so pleased to have been able to help some of the students at Kingston Maurward. They do some great work there and the students will get great pleasure from these trikes. As a result of discovering Kingston Maurward, we’re now hoping to get more involved by taking some of our groups to do outdoor adventure activities and visit the Animal Park.”

Kingston Maurward Head of Foundation Learning, Nicky Porter, said:

“We’d like to say a big thank you to Variety for giving the students the opportunity to be able to join in cycling. We would never have been able to get the equipment without their help – we’re incredibly grateful.”
