Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club sponsors an exciting day for young students with learning difficulties





Pupils with learning difficulties experienced the thrills of a theme park thanks to a Rotary grant recently.

Grantham pupils from the Young People's Learning Provision (YPLP) enjoyed a day at Wicksteed Park, funded by the Sunrise Rotary Club.

Fifteen young people, who attend YPLP on Trent Road, experienced the fun of the fair at the theme park, many for the first time.

He and President-Elect Praf Patel accompanied the pupils and their teachers.

"Some of these youngsters have never visited a theme park before, and it was our privilege to take them on such an experience," said Lez.
