A LOCAL charity is reaping the benefits of a specially-adapted minibus.
Solihull Life Opportunities (SoLO) has been using the bus since November. The charity, which supports adults and children with learning disabilities, acquired the vehicle thanks to the sterling efforts of half a dozen young members. The six-strong group presented a successful bid to the Young People’s Capital Fund.
The 14-seater mini bus is now available for hire and SoLO has teamed up with Community Transport to get the scheme on the road.
Janet Down, SoLO’s general manager, said: “This is a great example of how partnership working can benefit the whole community. SoLO now has a state-of-the-art bus available for our young people to use. Community Transport, who are the experts in bus management, will ensure that other groups are able to make full use of it.”
If you are a group working with young people and would like to hire this bus, call 0121 779 5547. To find out more go to www.solihullsolo.co.uk
