Forty children to benefit from day out

Have your say

SCORES of children with special needs in Spalding will enjoy a memorable day out next week when they take part in the annual Rotary KidsOut Day, the largest day out for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

Around 40 children and their carers will enjoy a fun packed day at Wicksteed Park on Wednesday organised by the Rotary Club of South Holland.

The Rotary Club of South Holland’s organiser Bob Bradley said: “Days out give children the opportunity to experience and discover new things and the effects of something as simple as having fun can last forever.

“All our Rotary volunteers love taking part in the KidsOut Day because it is a day filled with laughter and you can tell by the smiles what a difference it is making to these children.”

The Rotary Club of South Holland’s president Keith Brown added: “Many children are fortunate enough to be able to take trips to the beach and parks for granted but for some these are the days they may never get to experience.

“Organising a day out is often a major challenge for parents and carers who look after disabled children and those with profound learning difficulties.

“The Rotary KidsOut Day makes these special moments possible.”

Rotary strongly believes in the importance of promoting fun and happiness for disadvantaged children and young people irrespective of background or circumstances.
