The Children’s Trust gets vital new minibus

A brand new wheelchair friendly minibus was delivered to The Children's Trust today (31 March), marked with a special celebration by children and young people having brain injury rehabilitation at the centre in Tadworth, Surrey. The specially adapted Vauxhall Vivaro minibus, which will be used to take up to eight children, including two wheelchair users, on outings, medical appointments and visits home, was funded by The Presidents Club Charitable Trust, London. They also made a contribution towards the maintenance of the charity's other vehicles which are used by its team of 30 volunteer drivers, 365 days a year. Richard Fauvet, Transport Manager at The Children's Trust, said: "We're overjoyed to have this fantastic new minibus and we are extremely grateful to The Presidents Club Charitable Trust for their generous donation. "When families arrive at The Children's Trust, they have often spent months in hospital since the accident or illness that caused their child's brain injury. Visits home, hospital appointments and outings are crucial to every child's rehabilitation, so having new accessible vehicles to make this stress free is a big deal that makes a real difference to the children and families that come here." The Children's Trust needs to raise over £100,000 a year to run and maintain its transport service for children with brain injury. To donate £5 text CHILD to 70800
