Harrow Rotary Club raises money to send 100 children on a day trip to Thorpe Park
Harrow Rotary Club held a quiz night to raise money to send 100 disadvantaged children on an annual trip to Thorpe Park for a day.
The event at Harrow Civic Centre on Saturday was attended by more than 100 people in an effort to raise £1,500 for the KidsOut charity.
The trip will cost a total of £5,000, most of which will be spent on transport.
Barclays donated £750 to KidsOut and Waitrose in South Harrow gave store vouchers as raffle prizes and will be fundraising in store throughout March.
John Newby, former president of Harrow Rotary Club and a club member of over 25 years, said: “This is one of our annual fundraising events.
“We are raising money today to pay for the coaches that we need to take these children.”
He added: “The Rotary Club is an absolutely wonderful organisation and I’m very proud of the work we do.”
