Barnstondale Centre visitors going places thanks to Lookers Vauxhall

Visitors to Barnstondale Activity Centre are set for some exciting trips this year, thanks to Lookers Vauxhall Birkenhead, which has provided the charity with the use of a 17 seater minibus free of charge throughout 2018.
The loan is part of the national motor retailer’s efforts to support local community projects in the area and the wider UK, with the centre now looking to raise enough funds to buy the nearly new vehicle at a reduced cost by the end of the year.

Barnstondale Centre is a youth activity centre situated in the rural heart of the Wirral, Merseyside. Set in 15 acres of natural woodland and countryside, it welcomes day visitors and residential guests to enjoy its many sports and recreation facilities.

The inclusive centre, which includes log cabins for overnight stay, has become a vital resource for the local community, providing outdoor activities and opportunities for all ages and abilities, as well as plenty of space for socialising. It also provides conference facilities for local business and organisations.

Use of the new minibus will enable centre staff to take its young visitors further afield to take part in adventurous activities such as water sports.

Martin Benbow, General Manager at Lookers Vauxhall Birkenhead, said: “We are happy to be able to continue the good work of the Lookers group as it continues to forge strong relationships within the local community and make a real difference to people’s lives.

“We were first made aware of the fantastic work Barnstondale does through Network Q’s ongoing support for the charity and are delighted to provide this minibus to support the charity’s adventures.”

Heidi Hughes, Business Development Director at Barnstondale, said: “We are so grateful to Lookers for providing us with this minibus. Not only do we get to use the minibus free-of-charge for 12 months, but we also get to buy it for a fraction of its list price at the end of the year. We will be starting fundraising to buy the vehicle straightaway, so anyone interested in helping us reach our target of £13,000 or finding out more about the work Barnstondale does, should give us a call on 0151 648 1412 or visit the website www.barnstondale.org.”
