Cranleigh Rotary Supports Local Schools

On the 3rd of July, 56 students in Year 4 at Park Mead Primary School were excited to receive copies of the Usborne Illustrated English Dictionary, courtesy of Cranleigh Rotary.

The dictionaries were presented by the new Club President, Brian Arendell, who took over from David Hall at the end of June. The pupils could not wait to delve into the books, and to have them signed by Brian.

Previously, on the 4th May, Cranleigh Rotarian Andy Kolmar attended the weekly assemblies of Cranleigh Church of England, Ewhurst Primary and St Cuthbert Mayne Junior schools in order to present each of them with a cheque for £200.

For many years, Cranleigh Rotary has presented cheques or books (usually illustrated dictionaries) to local primary and junior schools, as part of its commitment to young people and the local community. The financial donations are given in order to assist the schools in purchasing new books for their libraries.

Cranleigh Rotary also continued its support for local schools by funding 12 children and 14 carers from Jigsaw School to enjoy the exciting experience on Wednesday, 13th June.

Each year, Cranleigh Rotary sponsors a number of disadvantaged students to take part in the special Kids Out event at Chessington World of Adventure, which is sponsored by Rotary Great Britain and Ireland. This year, the weather was good and the rides scary but everyone had a great time!
