The Rotary Club of Cranleigh once again took part in the annual ‘Kids Out’ Day, a national event which is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Great Britain and Ireland.

Each year, the Club pays for parties of disadvantaged children to enjoy a fun day Chessington World of Adventure.

On this occasion, the Cranleigh Club sponsored eleven 5 to 6 year-olds, plus 14 carers, from St Joseph’s Specialist School.

The Rotarians collected the children from the school in their cars and delivered them to Chessington. Entry to the World of Adventure was paid for by the Club.

The children and their carers were able to enjoy free rides until the early afternoon, when they re-assembled at the car park for the return trip to St Joseph’s.

“The weather was great, and everyone had a wonderful time,” said Rotarian Michael Hart, one of the organisers of the event.
