Young people at The Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton have been treated to the 56th ‘Smiley Bus’ which has been donated by the Steve Morgan Foundation to The Way.
The shiny new bus arrived in Wolverhampton and was welcomed by some very excited young people! In total, over 2,700 members and other young people will have access to the bus.
The young people themselves requested the bus to help support fellow members and their transport needs. The bus will allow young people from Bilston and Wednesfield and other areas of the city to travel to The Way Youth Zone, whilst young people, including those with a disability will be supported for trips and residentials.
Carla Priddon, CEO said “Thank you very much to Steve and all at the Foundation. This generous donation will enable more young people to access our provision at The Way Youth Zone and enable members to have new experiences, visit new places and access opportunities which were just not possible without the minibus.”
Jane Harris of the Steve Morgan Foundation said; We have been involved from the very beginning, with Steve Morgan being a driving force behind the building of The Way and the Foundation making substantial contributions towards this and other projects at The Way. The Trustees were delighted to continue this support by providing a Smiley Bus that will help The Way continue to make a real difference to the lives of young people in the Wolverhampton area.”
The Way Wolverhampton Youth Zone is a purpose-built facility for the city’s young people aged 8 – 19 and 25 with disabilities. Every night, The Way gives young people somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.
