Ro­tary Club thanks sup­port­ers for en­abling Kid­sOut day

Staines Informer - - NEWS -

THE 26th an­nual Ro­tary Kid­sOut day took about 400 chil­dren with spe­cial needs and their car­ers to Chess­ing­ton World of Ad­ven­tures last Wed­nes­day.

Wal­ton Ro­tary Club raised around £5,000 for the day out, tak­ing chil­dren from Wal­ton Leigh School, Wood­lands School in Leather­head and from Manor Mead School – the first time the Shep­per­ton pri­mary pupils had taken part.

Wal­ton Ro­tar­ian Peter Blom said: “I am ab­so­lutely de­lighted with the gen­er­ous fundrais­ing of more than £5,000.

“It was spent on this fan­tas­tic day out for all these chil­dren with spe­cial needs.”

Mayor of Elm­bridge Tan­nia Ship­ley and her hus­band, Nigel, joined the mer­ri­ment at Chess­ing­ton.

Mr Blom said: “They ar­rived at 10am, made a tour and got a good idea what was hap­pen­ing.

“They then met some of the chil­dren and car­ers and had lunch to­gether in one big room with all the chil­dren and their car­ers and teach­ers in the Aztec Ho­tel, which did a fan­tas­tic job in pro­vid­ing the ser­vice and fa­cil­i­ties.

“Many thanks to the Chess­ing­ton World of Ad­ven­tures for look­ing af­ter us.”

Ro­tary clubs across the coun­try col­lec­tively take up to 25,000 dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren on a fun day out each year as part of this scheme.

Pupils from Wal­ton Leigh School en­joyed their Kids Out Day at Chess­ing­ton.
