007 alumni Colin Salmon creates a special Bond with school
A new minibus is set to get disabled Oxfordshire youngsters out and about. James Bond film actor Colin Salmon, joined The Lady Taverners to present the Â£48,000 16-seater adapted bus to Fitzwaryn School on Tuesday. Salmon is best known for his role as MI6 aide Robinson in three Bond movies opposite Pierce Brosnan.
The school in Denchworth Road is for children with special needs and the new vehicle will mean pupils and staff can go to activities and venues that would otherwise be inaccessible.
The Lady Taverners is part of The Lordâs Taverners disability sports charity. It has been working with social group, the 100 Property Club, to provide schools across the country with minibuses.
Fitzwaryn office manager Carole Hollister said: âThe children were very excited. It was driven into the playground and the children all cheered. We had a few hip hip hoorays for the Lady Taverners.
âIt is important for the children to be able to go out into the community and our minibuses are used all the time.â
Lordâs Tavernersâ chief executive Matthew Patten said: âThe Lordâs Taverners believes sport and recreation are essential for all young people, particularly those with special needs.â
