Mitsubishi Donates L200 Barbarian to National Star College

As the company’s chosen charity for 2010 and 2011, Mitsubishi Motors UK gave a brand new L200 Barbarian, worth £27,383 ($43,467), to The National Star College. The organization aims to help disabled students achieve their ambitions through educational support and independent living.

“We are proud to support and be a part of the National Star College fund raising vision. Since the early part of 2010 we have raised a staggering £25,000.00 towards the needed facility developments. The team at Mitsubishi will continue to generate ideas and take part in challenges to help the college raise the £75,000.00 that they need for the completion of a sensory room,” said Lance Bradley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK.

The L200 is truly needed, as the college has had trouble transporting personal to and from its facilities in the bad British weather that was seen in the past two winters. The Barbarian will be also be used for maintenance works around the college and grounds.

“We are overwhelmed with the donation of the truck from Mitsubishi. We really struggle in bad weather up at College and the truck will provide us with a lifeline to get staff in and out of College. As a residential College with students with severe disabilities it is essential that we have a way to ensure staff can always get into work and the pick-up truck will help enormously with this. It will also be a much needed addition to the maintenance team to assist them with their work across College,” said Hugh Piggott, Director of Corporate Services at National Star College.
