Children from Studley Green Primary School in Trowbridge enjoyed a fun-filled day out at Longleat in June, with entrance fees paid for by The Rotary Club.
The trip was part of the Rotary Club's National Rotary KidsOut Day which is the single biggest outing for disadvantaged children across the UK. More than 10,000 Rotarians volunteer on the day across 100 venues to give children a day out to remember, whether they live with critical health issues, in refuge or with a disability.
Selwood Housing were pleased to support the day out for the children from Studley Green Primary through our Stronger Communities Fund by funding the coach to and from Longleat.
The children particularly enjoyed the boat safari on Longleat's lake where they were able to see hippos and seals, including a baby seal which had been born at the park for the first time in six years. Another highlight for the children was the koalas as well as enjoying ice-cream after lunch to keep cool on such a hot day.
