Rotary sees communities as being important. In Aldridge we run a number of projects within the local community every year - this one was the first activity day. We invited three local schools to send some pupils along with a parent to join us for a day of challenges. Both the parents and pupils took on the challenges working in their school groups encouraging each other to succeed.
The challenges were scaling the climbing wall and abseiling down it, canoeing, the assault course and zip wire across the lake. We were forcast a day of storms but the weather held off allowing us to make the most of being outdoors in the woodland.
We hope to be able to raise funds to run the project again next year as everyone involved had such a good time.
If you are interested in volunteering in the local community please get in touch to find out more about what we do locally.
