The Rotary Club of Neston’s Rotakids clubs are coming on strong.
The club is supported by assistant district governor (ADG) Molly Youd, chair of youth opportunities Howard Ferdinando, senior vice president of Neston, David Brigden and Neston members Carolyn Jowitt and Steve Martin.
Two schools have now signed up to Rotakids, following the initial success of Neston Primary School’s involvement.
Year 5 pupils of Neston Primary School spoke to the school and their guests about the first club to be set up in the area.
Previously, the school had taken part in the Crocus Project, selling a box of crocus pins to raise money to help eradicate polio.
When their crocus pots are in flower, they propose to sell those as well.
Their first local venture was a car wash on February 1.
This was very well attended and the Rotakids were busy with their sponges and leathers all morning.
Following closely in the footsteps of Neston Primary School, Woodfall Primary School, Neston has set up in conjunction with the rotary club of Neston District 1180s second Rotakids Club.
They have 35 members to date and like Neston Primary School have elected their officers and already have projects in place..
Their official launch took place at the school with district governor Philip, ADG Molly, Neston president Scirard Lancelyn Green, senior vice president David Brigden and members of the Neston Club present.
They too had been involved in the Crocus Project and were selling crocus pins and pots in bloom to raise funds to eradicate polio. Their local project will involve them collecting food for the newly set up food bank.
David Brigden said the enthusiasm of these youngsters was to be applauded.
He said: “Perhaps we as Rotarians can learn from them. As the first two Rotakids Clubs in District they are certainly worth watching.”
