Going places, thanks to Lookers Vauxhall

Barnstondale visitors will be going places this year, thanks to Lookers Vauxhall

P1030391Visitors to Barnstondale are set for some exciting adventures this year, thanks to a fabulous Christmas present from Lookers Vauxhall Birkenhead. The company has presented the charity with the use of a 17 seater minibus free of charge throughout 2018. We’re hoping and planning to raise funds to buy the nearly new vehicle at the end of the year.

Barnstondale welcomes day visitors and residential guests to enjoy its many facilities and we’re an inclusive centre, which means we provides adventures and outdoor activities for all ages and abilities. Use of the Lookers minibus will enable us to take visitors further afield to take part in adventurous activities such as kayaking.

Martin Benbow, General Manager at Lookers Birkenhead, said, “We were first made aware of the fantastic work Barnstondale does through Network Q’s ongoing support for the charity. When we heard Barnstondale would find the use of a new vehicle useful we were keen to help. We are delighted to provide this minibus, which has just 200 miles on the clock, to support the charity’s adventures.”

Heidi Hughes, Business Development Director at Barnstondale, said, “We are so grateful to Lookers for providing us with this minibus. Not only do we get to use the minibus free-of-charge for 12 months, but we also get to buy it for a fraction of its list price of £34,000 at the end of the year. We will be starting fundraising to buy the vehicle straightaway, so anyone interested in helping us reach our target of £13,000 or finding out more about the work Barnstondale does, should give us a call on 0151 648 1412
