Windsor Girls School's junior rotary club gets charter

Energetic pupils at Windsor Girls School have formed their own junior rotary club.

Girls from the Imperial Road school's Interact Club - the name given to junior rotary clubs for 12 to 18-year-olds - were presented with its charter and chains of office at 17th century Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park on Monday.

Guests included the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Richard Kellaway and their school's headteacher Gill Labrum.

Lauren Burton, who is president of Interact, spoke about their activities.

The 14 students founded the club in September 2014. To date, they have helped a fellow student fundraise for a skydive in aid of the British Heart Foundation, held collections at school for both the Windsor Food Bank and Berkshire Music Maestros and are currently raising money for a trip to Ecuador.

Mrs Labrum said: “As a community we are very proud of the efforts of the Interact Junior Rotary club in organising and supporting local and national charities."
