St. Francis Special School

Cycle 170km My Way  for St. Francis Special School

1With the funds from the 2020 Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, St. Francis Special School is is hoping to fund the purchase of a 16-seater fully wheelchair adaptable minibus for our school. Currently we do not have our own transport and depend on the charity of St. John Of God Services to lend us a minibus. It is usually available on three mornings per week but is not available if it is required by their service users on occasion. The bus that we borrow has fixed seating and is not suitable to transport any of our wheelchair users therefore we must hire private wheelchair accessible busses

We will use the bus to allow our students to experience many different social settings which often Parents find impossible to do especially children on the autistic spectrum who often find new experiences extremely difficult. We could use a bus daily to visit shops, cafes, the national park, beaches and other wonderful local amenities.
