Variety Sunshine Coach Hits the Road Thanks to Philanthropist’s Charity Ball

A school in Greater Manchester has received a fully accessible Sunshine Coach from Variety, the Children’s Charity.

Delamere School received the keys to the new minibus from philanthropist Michael Josephson MBE who, supported by The Baker Family Charitable Trust, donated the funds to buy the Sunshine Coach.

The school caters to children aged between three and 11 years with learning difficulties and additional complex needs such as autism, physical or sensory impairments. Their new coach will allow pupils to continue their education outside of the classroom, get into the local community, and build their confidence.

Mr Josephson’s star-studded annual charity ball regularly provides funds to Variety, the Children’s Charity, among others, to help disadvantaged children in the north-west.

“We are immensely grateful to Michael for his continued support and The Baker Family Charitable Trust”, said Lyn Staunton, a Development Director for Variety, the Children’s Charity.

“It’s thanks to such generous supporters that we can continue our work to help disabled and disadvantaged children to live their best lives and reach their full potential.”
