Special day out for SolAs class
Published 09/08/2014 | 00:00
PUPILS attending the Solas Special Class for Autism in Dunlavin had the time of their lives on the last day of the summer term thanks to the West Wicklow Classic and Vintage Club and the launch of the Baltinglass Classic Car and Motorcycle Run.
Club members brought a couple of cars into the grounds of the school so the children could see them up close and the pupils' certainly enjoyed the unusual visitors.
The class is now accommodated in their new building but not all of their services are state funded so they are still reliant on funding from the local community. All the proceeds from the run will go toward the provision of specialist services for the children in the class.
As well as the usual Classic vehicles taking part in the run, there will also be a special section for VW Golfs.
The VW Golf celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and Golf cars of all ages can participate.
The Classic Car and Motorcycle Run takes place on August 17 and all classic car, bike, commercial vehicle or VW Golf owners are invited to participate.
Also welcome are all sports cars, kit cars or modified and custom made vehicles. Prizes will also be handed out on the day.
If you can't attend the event then there are also sponsorship cards available throughout the area over the next two weeks which will allow you to make a donation.
