A NEW branch of Rotarians has been set up in Wirral – for youngsters.
The Rotary Club greeted new members from Neston Primary School by launching a new group called Rotakids.
Members from Year Five spoke to fellow pupils about their newly-formed club and their plans for the year ahead.
Steve Martin and David Brigden, from the Rotary Club, were delighted to welcome the new group.
The school have already taken part in the Crocus Project, and sold a box of crocus pins to raise money to help eradicate polio – which is the Rotary Club’s current mission.
Teaching assistant Rachel Muskett, who looks after the group, said: “Rotakids is a fantastic opportunity for the children to get involved with community and worldwide projects.
“As a past member of Neston Rotaract, I was very excited about having a Rotakids club at our school.
“I can speak from experience that being involved with these clubs gives you so much more confidence, and helps to prepare you for your future.”
The school is holding a car wash on Saturday, February 1, in Neston Primary School, from 9am to 12noon.
A donation of £4 or more per vehicle is asked for, with all of the money raised going towards Claire House.
