Variety, the Children’s Charity presented a brand new bright red Variety Sunshine Coach to staff and youngsters at Victoria Education Centre.

This is the second Sunshine Coach in three years. The 13 seater Coach will be used for day trips to special places such as Monkey World in Wareham.

Victoria Education Centre is a residential and day school in Poole Dorset offering specialised, high quality care and therapy for young disabled people from 3-19 years old. All the students have physical disabilities or complex medical conditions and many have additional needs including communication difficulties, learning difficulties and sensory impairments.

Variety Patron Ed ‘Stewpot’ Stewart and Chair of Variety Wessex handed the keys of the coach over to Head Teacher, Simon Brown.
