Kids Out Trip to Chessington

On the 13th June we had the privilege of taking a party of children to Chessington World Of Adventures and what a great day we all had!

Each year on the 2nd Wednesday of June Rotary Clubs throughout the UK organise a day out for special needs young people.  This is achieved with the help and support of the national Kids Out Charity (

This year Medway Sunlight Rotary Club, with the very generous support of a grant from Chatham Maritime Trust, was able to take a party of kids from year 7 at Rivermead  School and from Club Ausome to a special event at Chessington World of Adventures.

The party of 60 children, teachers, parents, carers and 3 Rotarians travelled by coach and minibus to Chessington where they joined over 2,500 others on a brilliantly sunny day.

A day of exciting rides, experiences and even a sighting of the Gruffalo followed before the party climbed back on the coach tired but with huge smiles on their faces.

We look forward to next year!
