Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club sends school girls on ‘successful’ leadership course





A Rotary Club sent two school girls on a trip to boost their confidence.

The Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club sent Grantham school girls, Alexia Blackwell and Polina Shrliaieva, to go on a Young RYLA course at the White Hall Centre in Derbyshire where they faced a number of challenging activities.

Success came their way as Polina finished in the winning team and Alexia’s team placed second.
