'Rota Kids' from Milby Primary School visited the George Eliot Hospital to make a very special donation to children who visit A&E.
The children who are all participating in the local Rotary Groups ‘Rota Kids’ programme donated a special gift of pens , pencils, activity and colouring books to make visits to A&E a little easier.
Milby School came along with representatives from the Rotary Club to personally handover the stationary gifts to nurses within the Children’s Assessment Unit.
Paediatric Lead Nurse, Leanne Clow said: “It was lovely to meet these lovely children who wanted to support others who unfortunately need to visit A&E.”
“The children came up with the idea themselves during their Rota Kids programme at the school and we are grateful for their generosity and kindness.”
Rota Kids offers young people the chance to develop personal skills and a better awareness of the problems that face the world today through the Rotary club led scheme. This is an opportunity for the children to meet, work and have a great time, while guided and supported by Rotarians.
The children are able to choose their own agenda and decide upon an area in which they would like to invest their time and money.
