Since its beginnings in 1990, "KIDS OUT" has turned into the biggest single outing for disadvantaged children in the UK. We take local children for a wonderful day out at Wicksteed Theme Park every year

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 28,000 children participating in 2019, 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.

The Rotary Club of Wellingborough Hatton organise one such event at Wicksteed Park, in Wellingborough, and we arrange a group of children from the Garth School in Spalding to be taken to the venue. where we join them for an exciting day having fun on all the rides and activities. It is a pleasure to watch the enjoyment that this event brings to their lives
