CHILDREN'S charity Variety gifted students of Petty Pool a bespoke 16-seat coach, specially adapted for use with young people with mobility problems.

Petty Pool, vocational college and outdoor centre in Sandiway, provides specialist education for up to 100 young adults aged 16 to 25 with learning difficulties.

The official handover of the latest adapted vehicle in the college's transport provision took place last week when David Welsh, managing director of Joie Baby and sponsor of the coach handed the keys over to Jayne Wilson, CEO of Petty Pool where visitors were treated to a tour of the college and a lunch hosted by the students.

Mike Cooksley, trustee of the Petty Pool trust said: "This is a magnificent gesture and will help guarantee that students at Petty Pool will continue to enjoy access to visits and trips.

"We are tremendously grateful to the generosity of Joie Baby and the assistance of Variety, the children's charity."

Variety , celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, has been improving the lives of sick, disabled and disadvantaged young people across the UK providing them with specialist equipment and creating memorable experiences.
