Top 50 Indie Sewell on the go has donated more than £2,500 to an East Riding secondary school so it reached its target for a new minibus. Cottingham High School and Sixth Form College needed to raise £25,500 to cover the cost of the 17-seat vehicle and received donations from the local community during the 18-month fundraising drive.
But the school fell £2,697.89 short of their target and Sewell on the go, which has a forecourt and convenience store in Cottingham, stepped in to help reach the final amount, as well as donating £600 a year to help towards fuel costs or receive discount on items sold in store.
Sewell Group managing director, Paul Sewell, and his son, Patrick, managing director of Sewell on the go, attended Cottingham High School, as did several Sewell Group staff and their families.
Current students who are involved in sports will be among those who benefit most from the minibus as they travel to interschool competitions.
