Kids Out Surplus Funds used to Support Local Childrens Hostel

After our successful 12 Club collaboration for Kids Out event in June we had some surplus funds. So responding to a request for support it was agreed to use it to help out a small children’s home called Roston that supports younger children. We helped to fund some planting out in the gardens and provide a swing. They sent a thank you letter back to us and the other clubs that helped out. #proudtoberotary.
