Peak break for city kids

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Rotary Club is hosting the first of three one week holidays this week, for city children at its Castleton centre.

Up to 30 youngsters who might otherwise not have had a holiday are enjoying a break run by Rotarians, a tradition which stretches back for over 90 years.

Activities range from weaselling on Burbage Edge to a trip to Gulliver’s Kingdom, and from country life with Peak Park wardens to indoor and outdoor games at the Rotary Centre.

The club is always open to new members who could help in such projects as the Children’s Camp or the annual Music in the Gardens Festival, which are just some of the organisation’s charitable efforts.

Club president Bryan Whitfield went on a Rotary holiday himself in the 1960s.
