Just before the end of the year, Myrddin Special Unit took delivery of their much anticipated new minibus from The Lord’s Taverners. The arrival of the new bus was marked by pupils taking part in their Christmas performance for more than 100 parents and guests.
Thanks to the kind donation from the Nolan Charity Fund as well as funding from many other businesses and individuals, the special unit was able to raise the £15,000 needed towards the £58,000 wheelchair accessible bus.
Commenting on the event, Ceri Lilly from Myrddin Special Unit, said:
“The show was fab, and a good time was had by all. The Mayor of Carmarthen was also present, and he was amazed at the state of the art vehicle; especially the interior mood lighting.
“We are only a very small special school, in a rural area. It is a very beautiful area, and our new bus helps us make the most of where we live. Teaching and learning for our pupils is very different, and exploring our environment and special activities like horse riding, skiing and swimming would be impossible without the bus. The Lord’s Taverners and all the kind donations we have received have helped a group of very special children enjoy their school day, and continue to make some very difficult lives just that bit easier. We are very grateful to you all.”
