A state-of-the-art venture between tech firms Ring Carnation and client Treka has helped launch of a new mobility bus for Mirfield-based Hollybank Trust.

The trust provides support and education to over 120 people from babies to adults with disabilities.

The brand-new bus will allow the organisation to deliver additional care to those living across the South and West Yorkshire communities.

It will also see staff take residents and clients on day trips and to routine appointments and interact more with the local community.

Richard Yates, Divisional Director for Ring Carnation, said: “After receiving a call from Treka asking us to support the Hollybank Trust we jumped at the chance to get involved.

“We’ve worked with the charity on numerous occasions and were more than happy to donate our products to a truly worthy cause.

“The service they deliver is invaluable for those that rely on the organisation.

“The genisys™ system we have donated is a token of our appreciation for the work they do and will allow them to continue for many years to come.”

Harry Clouth, Senior Fundraiser, added: “Everybody at Hollybank Trust would like to thank Ring Carnation for the generous donation and for the work they have done for us in the past.

“It is really important that we get out into the local community and that we have the facilities required to support our service users. This new bus will make all of the difference. We can’t wait to get on the road to show it off!”
