Mayfield School in Whitehaven is celebrating a double win. The pupils beat off competition nationally to be recognised for their work in helping the children achievement movement independence and they were presented with a new bus.

Some pupils at Mayfield struggle to do tasks others take for granted like sitting and standing. The school works with the charity MOVE to helps these children gain some independence.

The pupils won a trophy and a cheque for £500 towards new equipment.

The pupils were also presented with a new school bus by the Variety Children's charity. They've already used it to go to horse riding lessons, swimming, wheelchair basket ball and golf.

However, it was the colour of the bus which pleased the sixth form lads.
