A Burnley van company has helped a community group provide a minibus for adults with special needs.

East Lancashire Van Sales provided the vehicle for Oldham not-for-profit organisation Funky Fitness and Fun.

The group was looking for a minibus to transport people to meetings and activities and also to help with respite holidays for families who need a break. Robert Burns-Dyson, from Funky Fitness and Fun, said they looked at companies all over the North-West before settling on the Burnley firm.

“After arriving we were greeted by two members of staff who, after hearing what work we did and what the minibus would be used for, got on the phone and worked out an amazingly generous offer for us which we couldn’t refuse.

“We are so very grateful to everyone at East Lancashire Van Sales for their fantastic friendly and extremely helpful customer service.”
