Nantwich pupils enjoy free trip to zoo
Pupils from a Nantwich primary school enjoyed a trip to Chester Zoo following a Rotary club’s donation.
The zoo donated entry tickets for a local school of the club’s choice after the Rotary Club of Nantwich sponsored the attraction’s Living with Tigers programme.
An additional donation from Rotary members paid for the travel costs so that pupils, teachers and carers from Nantwich Primary Academy could enjoy the visit for free.
Year One teacher Julia McGhie said: “Nantwich Primary Academy is very grateful to the Rotary Club of Nantwich for the funding that allowed our Year One children to visit Chester Zoo.
“It was a fantastic opportunity, which was both educational and fun for the children, many of whom had never been to a zoo before.
“We saw just about every animal and the highlight had to be the beautiful tigers in the new islands exhibit which came right up close as if to pose for our photographs.
“The children have been excited ever since and have written all about their favourite animals, from the tropical butterflies to the spider monkeys, lions and tigers.”
Rotarian John Crowe added: “Our continued support of our local community as well as environmental causes around the world is one of the main reasons we exist.
“We were thrilled to be able to support both tigers in Nepal and our local primary school children.”
