Once again Nonsuch Rotary members took local disadvantaged children to Chessington World of Adventuresfor the annual "Kids Out" trip. Rotary in Great Britain started this national event in 1990 and each year some 10,000 Rotary volunteers take over 25,000 children to the local attractions. Since 1990 over 695,000 children have been given a fun day out.
Nonsuch Rotary has always taken part, and this year nine members drove some eighteen children from Foresters Primary School which supports children with autism and Rushy Meadow School which helps children with impaired hearing.
It is just wonderful to see and hear the excitement of the children as we drive them to the Adventure park, only surpassed when we pick them up and hear of all the fun that they have enjoyed.
Happy faces all round!
