KidsOut Trip to Oakwood for the children of Ysgol Y Deri, Penarth.
On the 23 June, Mainline Coaches were delighted to support Dinas Powys Rotary Club a wonderful day out to Oakwood for two coaches of school children from Ysgol Y Deri, Penarth. The trip was part of the national Rotary KidsOut scheme, which has resumed after a long gap caused by COVID.
Thanks to the money raised at Dinas Powys Rotary’s very successful Classic Car Show, held in Sully on May 29th, twice as many children were able to take part in the trip this year, including those who missed out last summer.
A great day was had by all, the weather was perfect, sunny but not too hot!
