FOBE – FRIENDS OF BRIGHT EYES
Friends of Bright Eyes is a registered charity providing vital support services for children with disabilities, and their families. Founded by a mother, who needed support for her own disabled child, FOBE provides activity clubs, trips and outings, holiday play schemes and many other exciting experiences that greatly improve quality of life for these children, their parents and their carers.
Zeppelin has been privileged to be able to help FOBE in a small way, with replacement parts for the charity’s IVECO minibus:
“Accessible Transport is an essential part of our service. Without it, many children and families would struggle to access our services and it would mean they are cut off from the support which is so vital to them.
Since purchasing our own adapted minibus in 2017 for the transportation of disabled users, one of the biggest challenges has been sourcing parts to ensure appropriate maintenance.
Zeppelin Trading have been super from the word go. They’ve been extremely supportive, providing us with great advice and going out of their way to help source the right parts required. They are clearly specialists in the area and their knowledge and expertise has been invaluable. In addition, the support they’ve shown in providing many items at low or no cost has been absolutely essential in keeping our minibus on the road and available to our users. I couldn’t be more grateful to them and the important part they play in ensuring disabled children get the support they need.
FOBE would like to say a huge Thank You to the team at Zeppelin!”
