Rotary Club members give kids a day out
PUPILS from a special needs school in Knowle enjoyed a day out at Bristol Zoo courtesy of rotary club members.
Bristol Rotary Club, based at Redwood Lodge, took a group of around 30 children from Knowle DGE School to the zoo, which included an exclusive animal encounter demonstration, face painting and lunch.
The trip was part of national event Rotary KidsOut Day, which sees clubs all over the UK taking disadvantaged or special needs children for a day of fun which is meant to bring both fun and happiness into their lives.
Since 1990 Rotary members have taken out up to 25,000 disadvantaged children.

Katie Cooper, a member of Bristol Rotary Club, told the Post: "It was a great day out with some lovely children, who were very polite and appreciative.
"They were able to meet a python and a giant African snail, and enjoyed having their faces painted."
