Farnborough College of Technology Minibus 

In June Farnborough Lions Club received a request from Farnborough College of Technology's  Foundation Studies and Entry Level Department for assistance to raise raise funds towards the purchase a minibus for their special needs students. We were only too happy to help, but as this project is so large we asked our friends in the nearby Lions Clubs of Aldershot, Fleet, Hart, Hook & Odiham and Yateley & District if they would like to help.

In the true Lions spirit these clubs gave outstanding support enabling us to raise the funds very quickly to purchase the  minibus with the help also of student parents  .

 At the Autumn Quiz Night Programme Manager for the Foundation Studies Department, Liz Wilson thanked the  Lions Clubs and quiz night contestants for their generous support by explaining how the minibus is used to help the students develop their employability skills, independence  and confidence. She also showed a short video which illustrates the tremendous benefit  the minibus has made to the students..

To play this video click on the image below and to view full screen by click on the open square button near the bottom right corner. It starts at the Quiz Night with the short introduction by Liz Wilson and then continues with the video made by the students. Altogether it runs for just over 4 minutes  and is well worth watching until the end.
