Wigan Rotary Enjoy Supporting Local Children’s Groups

Organisors of the Toddler Group with President Mervyn Reeves and Rtn. Aukje Clegg OBE

For many years now Wigan Rotary Club has helped two local pre school   groups that provide support for parents/ grandparents and children.  Recently President Mervyn Reeves and Rotarians Alan Clegg and Aukje Clegg OBE, had great pleasure in  visiting each group at their respective sessions in Beech-Hill to hand over two much needed  cheques which will be used to purchase new equipment and books for all the children to enjoy.

In the case of  the  Parents and Toddler group they  are now able to purchase a piece of equipment for the younger toddlers to play on.   Meanwhile, at   the second  group which  provides pre-school education,  the money will be used to buy new reading books,  which will then be available to taken home for children and parents to enjoy  during  the following  week.  This   provides  a valuable  opportunity for families to read together and to share an experience  they  would not otherwise be able to do and learn from. 

Grateful thanks were expressed   to   Wigan Rotary Club for agreeing to support this worthwhile project.  President Mervyn Reeves said “I just wish everyone could have seen the faces of the volunteers and parents alike.  It just goes to show what a little help can achieve”.
