Bishop’s sponsors school minibus

Jun 22, 2015
For the next three years Bishop’s Move Oxford, part of the Bishop’s Move Group is sponsoring a minibus for Springfield Special Needs School, based in Witney.

The vehicle will be painted in Bishop’s Move’s recognisable yellow, blue and red colours.  The company also has committed to contributing £2,000 each year towards the maintenance and fuel of the minibus.  The autistic son of Angus Mackintosh, a HGV driver at Bishop’s Move Oxford, currently attends Springfield. Later this year Angus will complete a skydive – again sponsored by Bishop’s Move - to help raise further money for the school.

On Friday 17 April, representatives from both Bishop’s Move and Springfield School were joined by the Mayor of Witney, local councillors - including parliamentary candidates - and a number of parents for the official unveiling of the vehicle.

 “We are delighted to have agreed this partnership with Bishop’s Move,” said Emma Lawley, Springfield School’s Head Teacher. “The vehicle looks fantastic and I’m confident the children will enjoy using the minibus. Access to transport is crucial for our pupils as it enables them to get out and about to wider activities such as Riding for the Disabled, swimming, sports events, day trips and residentials. The vehicle certainly stands out from the crowd and I’d like to thank Bishop’s Move for its generous support and everyone who came to the official unveiling of the minibus.”

Rob Jeffrey, Bishop’s Move Oxford Branch Manager said: “As a company, we are firmly in the business of supporting our local communities. The investment into the new vehicle means Springfield School needn’t worry about fuel and maintenance costs for the next three years which I hope further empowers them to meet their visions, values and aims. It’s a wonderful establishment and we are proud to support them.”

 “We look forward to a fruitful relationship with Springfield School over the course of the next three years,” said Chris Marshall, Bishop’s Move Sales & Marketing Director.
