THREE coaches have been donated to schools in Bournemouth and Colehill by a group of businessmen.

The BC Club raised and donated £100,000 to buy the Sunshine Coaches which were then presented to the schools by children’s charity Variety.

Beaucroft Foundation School in Colehill received two coaches, while St Clements and St John’s Church of England Infant School received the other with the idea of the coaches to enable pupils to go on trips they otherwise would have had to miss.

Variety is a charity that provides practical support to help make a difference to disabled and disadvantaged young people with their logo featured on the coaches.

Frances Cornelius, a spokesperson for Variety, said: “On behalf of the schools and Variety, I’d like to thank the BC Club for funding these amazing Sunshine Coaches, they will provide children with amazing memories that they will take forward for the rest of their lives.

“We believe every child has the right to live their best life and reach their full potential, whoever they are.”

The BC Club started in 2008 and has raised more than £500,000 in that time.
