Our colleagues at H.R. Owen Aston Martin in Reading and Cheltenham have been spreading some Easter cheer this week, with a very important delivery to local schools. The teams each loaded up a pair of Aston Martins – a DBX and a DB11 Volante –with an abundance of Easter eggs for the schoolchildren, with the two cars quite literally choc-full of Easter treats.
The team at Aston Martin Reading took their Easter egg-laden DBX to The Avenue Special Needs Academy, making sure eggs in the 632-litre boot were transported with the utmost care.
Once they had arrived, the team were given a helping hand by some eager pupils to organise the Easter eggs for the teachers to share out amongst the students throughout the school. The Avenue is a day special school for boys and girls from ages 2-19 with complex special educational needs. To help each student learn in a manner that best suits them, the school offers a tailored curriculum, supporting them to enjoy a high-quality of life.
Symon Cooke, headteacher of The Avenue school, was delighted to see the impact the gesture had on the pupils and said, “There is a real strength to our community spirit in Reading, and the positive impact days like today have on our students is really important. It’s a wonderful gesture that is very gratefully received by all of us here.”
Meanwhile, at H.R Owen Cheltenham the team paid a visit to Bettridge School, which is near to the showroom and provides individualised learning pathways to young people aged 2-19. The team arrived in a DB11 Volante full to the brim with Easter eggs, both in the boot and placed in the back seats, with the roof down.
Bettridge School always puts its students first, celebrating their accomplishments while encouraging families to play an active part in their child’s education and development. The school provides a supportive learning environment for its students, helping them achieve their goals in their education, health and care plans.
Jo Bleasdale, headteacher of Bettridge School, expressed her thanks, saying, “We’re incredibly grateful for the gifts and the effort that the Aston Martin Cheltenham team went to in delivering them to us in such unforgettable style. Our students were over the moon, and acts like this really bring us together.”
