ORB donate minibus to Harrison's College

19 May 2022

Club Doncaster 100Club silver partner ORB Recruitment has donated a minibus to bronze partner Harrison College.

Both businesses are Doncaster-based and ORB Recruitment have given back to the community by donating on minibus to Harrison College.

Harrison College are a specialist business, enterprise and employability college for young people with autism and special educational needs.

Gemma Peebles, who founded Harrison College and is principal and chief executive officer, said: “The previous minibus had a capacity for 14 young people, however this is no longer sufficient so I sought support from a sponsor.

“Stewart Olsen, ORB’s managing director, sprung to mind because he understands the ethos of the college and the aspirational targets for young people. He has spent time at the college in the past working with the students in developing and judging a mobile app competition.

“I explained to Stewart the challenges we were facing to transport our young people, not only to college, but also to the wide variety of internships they participate in.

“Stewart offered ORB’s support and we cannot thank them enough. The new minibus will have a significant impact.” 

Stewart Olsen, managing director at ORB Recruitment, said: “We are well aware of the fantastic provision Harrison College offers to young people with learning difficulties and after speaking with Gemma we realised the impact a new minibus would have.

"We know the very real benefit it is going to bring to staff and pupils at the college.”
