Rotary in Skipton
Rotary In Skipton and Brooklands.
Rotary In Skipton is pleased to be able to support Brooklands School. Funds for this purpose come from local fundraising. The photo shows some Rotarian volunteers who help to run the Charity car park in the Bailey, which is made available by kind permission of Skipton Building Society. The Charity Car Park is held on Saturdays, Bank Holidays & Christmas market days. Rotary In Skipton also organises the Great Skipton Santa Fun Run, the Santa’s Sleigh collections and the Mulled Wine Stall at Skipton Christmas Market.
Kids Out and the Pantomime visit are also made possible by Rotary In Skipton fundraising. “Oh Yes They Are!” 😊

Rotary in Craven and Brooklands
Our School continues to enjoy its longstanding relationship with Rotary International through Skipton Craven and Skipton Rotary Clubs. They provide grants to us to make possible our school visits to the pantomime each New Year (to the Bradford Alhambra and Pendle Municipal Theatres in 2021 and 2022 respectively); and also to our Summer Fun Days Out to Lightwater Valley in 2019 and to Blackpool’s Zoo and Pleasure Beach in 2022. All are designated ‘Kids Out’ events that have been linked to the national Kids Out Charity since 1990, that supports outings across the UK for thousands of children.
Other grants have been received over the years from Rotary, most recently from both local clubs towards the development of our Trim Trail and recreational area, and class trips to Zen S and B Sensory. Other much valued support comes from Skipton Craven with a visit from Santa and his sleigh to our Christmas Party each year, and panel support to other enjoyable events e.g. Brooklands Got Talent Competition!
