Charlton Manor primary school has launched an appeal for £25,000 to replace a minibus that was stolen during the summer.
The bus was taken on August 5, and was found the next day abandoned and stripped of parts.
“On top of everything, we have just started to recover from the terrible year we experienced due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and our children haven’t had any chance to travel for the last year,” the school says.
The school had raised just over £2,000 last night.
