Rotakids

Posted on : 28-12-2013 | By : Allan | In : News

It has been a busy fortnight for Lancaster Rotary Club president Allan Garrick and Youth Services chairman Mike Worth as they have attended inaugural meetings of three new clubs in Lancaster, at Christ Church, Cockerham Parochial, and Scotforth St. Paul’s CE Primary Schools.

These clubs, known as RotaKids, are set up with the aim of building self esteem, leadership skills and introducing community service in partnership with Rotary to children aged 7-12.

Each club has appointed its own President, Secretary and Treasurer and has set its own agenda in terms of fund raising and service projects. Christ Church is already raising money for Friends of Chernobyl Children and collecting clothing to support St. John’s Hospice whilst Scotforth St. Paul’s took the Hug a Bear project to its heart and provided a roomful of teddy bears for transportation to the Philippines to provide comfort to young children injured and bereaved as a result of Typhoon Haiyan.

It is hoped to introduce RotaKids to several more Lancaster schools in the new year so that they too can contribute,and have fun doing so.

Finally, Lancaster Rotary Club was delighted to receive a donation of £500 from the pupils of Ripley St. Thomas Academy towards the purchase of a Shelterbox as a result of which three boxes have been purchased for use in the Philippines. One has been purchased in the name of Lancaster RotaKids and another in the name of Ripley St.Thomas and each can be tracked online by the pupils.
