THE Rotary Club of Amber Valley has been in action at the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre (DCHC) in Skegness as they took part in spring cleaning and re-painting of the sports hall there.
Each year the centre aims to provide more than 450 disadvantaged children from Derbyshire with a much-needed holiday at its residential centre in Lincolnshire. It gives the children a week of fresh air, nutritious meals, structured play, one-on-one attention and fun.
As the centre is run entirely through voluntary donations, this year, the Rotary Club of Amber Valley decided to give its time as well as money.
So armed with sleeping bags, paint pots, brushes and rollers, a number of rotary club members from Amber Valley spent four days and nights at centre working to give new life to the sports hall.
