New tree marks fundraising efforts

A TREE-PLANTING ceremony has marked the success of a junior community group in Portishead.

Portishead Rotary Club donated a Gingko Fairmont tree to Trinity Primary School to commemorate the forming of the first RotaKids Club in the district, which took place in 2009. The tree, donated by Chris Gill of Bartlett Tree Experts, was planted in the school’s peace garden.

RoatKids is a primary school citizen programme aimed at junior school pupils, who become the youngest members of the Rotary family.

Since the club was formed at the Marjoram Way school, it has raised funds for Children in Need, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, Springboard Opportunity Group and Sport Relief. The young members have also supported other good causes.
