First Aid Training for our Community Vehicle Programme Students

On Tuesday 10 March we welcomed Becky from the British Red Cross to the Wheels Project. She delivered some First Aid training to our group of students from Merchants' Academy who are currently on our Community Vehicle Programme.

This is the third session she had delivered this term, the others were to students from Orchard School and Chipping Sodbury School.

Thank you Becky.

Term 4 : Week Commencing 23 February

This the last week of another pretty full term!

In Term 4 we will be welcoming back students from Orchard School, Merchants Academy, Chipping Sodbury School (South Glos W2L) and The Meriton who will be finishing their Community Vehicle (CV) courses with us.  The handover of finished vehicles to the chosen recipient groups will take place during this term.

Young people from Studio Kids will also be returning to Wheels to complete their Kick Start Karts course and move on to the CV Programme.

Also, next term will see some of the students who completed our BSKC Prep course in Terms 1 and 2 taking part in 2 x Wheels' practice karting sessions at TeamSport and then competing in the BSKC Formal Practice on 4 March and Round 1 on 18 March.  Good luck to them!

Update on Land Rover donated in 2010 to RSPCA by South Glos W2L CV Group

Had a lovely email from Lee Stewart, Centre Manager of the RSPCA's, Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre about the Land Rover gifted to them by our South Glos W2L Community Vehicle Programme students in 2010.

'Thought it was about time I touch base with you to bring you up to speed with how your vehicle has done over the past four years...brilliantly!!

I have put a letter of thanks in the post tonight along with a couple of pics you can put up on the board for the students to see.... I have also attached a few pictures and some videos that I thought you and the kids might like to see too.

Once again, many thanks for all your support, it has really been appreciated by myself, Rob and the team here.'
