The Duke of Edinburgh, Patron and Twelfth Man of The Lordâ€™s Taverners, cricketâ€™s official charity, has presented the 800th Lordâ€™s Taverners minibus to Holyport Manor School, Maidenhead at Windsor Castle. The minibus is to mark the 80th birthday of Her Majesty The Queen.
The charity was represented by Rachael Heyhoe Flint, The President of The Lady Taverners, who commented: â€œIt is wonderful that The Duke of Edinburgh has been able to present the charityâ€™s 800th minibus to coincide with Her Majestyâ€™s the Queenâ€™s 80th birthday yearâ€.
Ford chairman and managing director Roelant de Waard commented: "We are delighted and honoured that The Ford Transit mini bus is the vehicle of choice of The Lordâ€™s Taverners for its specially converted minibuses. Ford has been supplying these vehicles to the charity for the last 30 years and the new Ford Transit minibus is designed to be still more appropriate for the needs of drivers and passengers alike."
Holyport Manor School is a special needs school catering for 160 pupils under the age of 18 years. All of the pupils have a statement of special needs and a significant number of children have mobility problems. The minibus will be used to allow the children to visit the local hydrotherapy pool and to integrate into the local community.
