Cat Connelly and Darren Smith with some of their members meet the Reigate Rotarians
As part of the Reigate Rotary Club’s program for the support of local youth projects, the club presented three Lynx Tablet computers to the Sovereign Youth Club in their Slipshatch Road, Woodhatch headquarters last week.
The tablets will be used by the members of the ‘ Drop in Club ‘ under the instruction of their youth leaders both for education and amusement purposes. The youth club is funded by Surrey County Council but these funds only go so far. Reigate Rotary Club chose the computers from a ‘wish list’ of items which the budget would not stretch to.
The Sovereign club holds sessions for 10-13 year olds on Wednesdays 6.30-8.30pm and on Thursdays for 14-19 year olds. The sessions include sports, crafts, cooking, games and a lot more. The youth club in Woodhatch was founded in 1669 providing leisure activities for the local area and has gone a long way to keep up with the demands of 21st century young people with some help from the Rotary Club and other sponsors.
