A team of volunteers from Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) and Classic Works gave some special needs children an opportunity of a lifetime.
The group took a range of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles up to Brays Special School in Solihull for the pupils to explore them like never before.
There was lots of horn beeping, pretend driving, and button pressing as the volunteers showed the staff and young people around each vehicle.
Head teacher Caron Davis said: “Many of our children rarely get opportunities to explore different situations and environments, so as a school we try to give them as many opportunities as possible.
“Our children have had one of their best days this year thanks to Jaguar Land Rover. Thank you for making this happen. It is people like yourselves who make a difference to children like ours and that should be recognised.”
SVO has worked on a number of projects with Brays Special School, which caters for young people with physical needs, learning difficulties, specific communication and learning needs, visual and hearing impairments.
This activity was arranged by SVO’s Darren Bell, as he was supported by colleagues Matt Smith, Simon Baldey, Nick Warren, Helen Blenkinsop, Charles Ladds and Gareth Jones in the run-up and on the day.
Darren says: “Making a positive impact on the community takes a real commitment, and it took a lot to organise this event. However, it was all worth it when we saw the children’s faces when the cars arrived at the school.
“I know everyone who supported the event would agree that the day was totally rewarding and it was a pleasure to be involved.”
