Variety works to improve the lives of children and young people throughout the UK who are sick, disabled, or disadvantaged. They provide coaches, bespoke wheelchairs, and specialist sensory or recreational equipment for use in homes, schools, children’s hospitals and youth centres. They also create memorable experiences through ‘Variety Great Days Out.’Sunshine Coaches
Every day, Variety’s famous Sunshine Coaches transport thousands of young people. Most are used by schools or organisations for children with special needs. Having their own Sunshine Coach enables schools and organisations to plan activities without worrying about the cost and timing of public transport. Each coach represents a team fundraising effort between the school or organisation, Variety, and their corporate and individual sponsors.
