Leading WAV solution supplier, Koller Engineering, is one of seven mobility firms which have teamed up to provide a special school in Milton Keynes with an accessible minibus.
Pupils and staff from the Redway School, which is described as an ‘extra special’ special school and teaches children and teenagers from the age of two to 19 who have a range of learning difficulties, said they were pleased to receive their new-look minibus.
A group initiative saw seven companies from the mobility industry join forces to totally transform the Milton Keynes based Local Authority school minibus with new equipment including wheelchair restraints and an access lift.
“We were approached by London Hire to help them in updating the Redway School’s minibus to equip it with the very latest Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle products. We were only too pleased to provide our innovative equipment for the vehicle,” said director Dean Koller.
He added: “Koller believe it is important to help local charities and support communities with projects like this. We hope the newly refurbished minibus will make a big difference to the school and provide the very best transport for the pupils. We are delighted that the refurbished minibus will help in providing specially adapted wheelchair access to allow students in wheelchairs and with special needs, the opportunity to get out of the classroom.”
