The Rotary Club of Lunesdale host Children from Belarus

On Tuesday 18th June 11 children, ages between 8 - 12 years plus 2 interpreters from Belarus, spent the day as guests of the Rotary Club of Lunesdale.

Children from Belarus

In the morning President Hugh Sweenie and President Elect Dave Lewis plus some members of the Club met the children at the Lakeland Climbing Centre in Kendal as guests of Mr. Mrs Wilson. Here they enjoyed, with great enthusiasm, the numerous challenges the Centre offers including the "Leap of Death"!  Lunch was provided at Kirkby Lonsdale followed by a visit to the swing park in Barbon.

Next on the agenda was a relaxing walk along the river path at Kirkby Lonsdale on a warm and sunny day. A delicious afternoon tea was eaten with relish before finally each of the children was presented with a backpack full of useful goodies plus a teddybear. It was then time to share hugs and say goodbyes before boarding the bus and heading back to their host families in Silverdale. A good day was had by all.
