New bus


​In May, 2010 Variety donated a much needed bus to Townsville Community Learning Centre. The bus was commissioned at a whole school assembly accompanied by  loud  cheers. Students made a THANKYOU VARIETY banner and had the opportunity to view the new bus. Some tested the hoists whilst others tried out the seats.

Variety Queensland, Perpetual Investments, and the Townsville Community Learning Centre joined forces to purchase a Sunshine Coach to enable TCLC’s mobility challenged students to enjoy educational outings. 

The 21 seater bus modified to fit 3 wheelchairs at a time will enable students in wheelchairs, and  those with mobility impairments to participate in a range of community based activities. This helps enhance the students awareness of and interaction with the community and further their development of  life skills.

The Variety Sunshine Coach which cost $133 937.55 was also supported by The E Robert  Hayles & Alison L Hayles charitable Trust as well as the Russell McKimmin charitable Trust.

Variety Queensland CEO Mr Les Riley said “The Variety Sunshine Coach program benefits thousands of Queensland children and families every day.  They help special needs children get out and about like everyone else.”
