Richmond Park Academy took delivery of a brand new Sunshine Variety Coach at an official presentation at St George’s Golf Club in Weybridge today. The school secured one of the iconic Sunshine Coaches after a successful application at the end of 2016. The Variety Club initiative transport thousands of children and young people each day across the country and the school is delighted to be part of the Sunshine family. 

The Sunshine coach is a joint fundraising effort between Richmond Park Academy, Richmond Park Academy’s PTA, Variety and the sponsoring organisations, the Aircraft Golfing Society (AGS) and the Variety Club Golf Society. It was presented to Mr Mundy-Castle and students, Elizabeth P, Cate F, Ellie C, Daniel A and Cameron D by footballing legends Sir Trevor Brooking and Ray Clemence and World Champion boxer, John Conteh.

Richmond Park Academy’s Principal, Paul Mundy-Castle, was delighted with the new addition to the school, “Having a second minibus will have a significant impact on the opportunities that we will be able to take advantage of on behalf of our students. It is a very exciting prospect for all of us in school as we actively look to widen the experiences our students enjoy”
