National Rotary KidsOut Day
Every June, the Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland together with KidsOut take over 30,000 disadvantaged children on a fun day out. The children visit the seaside, theme parks, adventure playgrounds and zoos, giving them all wonderful memories to cherish for a lifetime.
The first National Rotary KidsOut Day took place in 1990 and since then it has turned into the biggest single outing for disadvantaged children in the UK. With more than 30,000 children participating in 2018, the National Day Out is run nationally in conjunction with Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) and is always on the second Wednesday in June.
To make the National Rotary KidsOut Day the success that it is, more than 10,000 Rotarians volunteer on the day at over 100 venues. Whether they live with critical health issues, in refuge or with a disability, children across the country are taken on a fun day out to the zoo, a theme park or even the seaside, often for the first time in their lives.
