Mrs Johnson, Mrs Jesshop and Year 11 students showed their gratitude to donors at Kingswood Golf Club on 25th September, when the school was presented with a Variety Club Sunshine Coach.
The minibus was kindly donated by The Variety Club Golfing Society and sponsored by Pip Burley and Mike Spanswick at the Sir Henry Cooper Memorial Classic at Kingswood Golf Club.
The coach, which is fully fitted out and worth somewhere in the region of £30,000, is one of a number of coaches presented each year by the Golf Society to schools and institutions throughout the country, which the charity has been doing since its formation in the 1962. Last year, the Golf Society raised nearly £750,000 and put 21 Sunshine Coaches on the road.
Other notable Variety Club Golfing Society members were also in attendance including Croydon-born rugby player Henry Cheeseman, comedian Stan Boardman, singer Jes Conrad and the Captain of the Society Mark Ramprakash, former English Cricketer and star of Strictly Come Dancing!
