National Rotary KidsOut Day

The National Rotary KidsOut Day takes place on 13th June 2018

If you are a Rotarian already involved in the event, please click here to order your caps.

The first National Rotary KidsOut Day took place in 1990 and since then it has turned into the biggest single outing for disadvantaged children in the UK. With more than 29,000 children participating in 2016, the National Day Out is run nationally in conjunction with Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) and is always on the second Wednesday in June.


To make the National Rotary KidsOut Day the success that it is, more than 10,000 Rotarians volunteer on the day at over 100 venues. Whether they live with critical health issues, in refuge or with a disability, children across the country are taken on a fun day out to the zoo, a theme park or even the seaside, often for the first time in their lives.


We are always keen to expand the National Rotary KidsOut Day even further. If you would like to offer a venue or facility for the day email us at or call 01525 385252.



Building on the success of the National Rotary KidsOut Day, starting in 2015 we have launched a second annual big day out for the same groups. Taking place on the first Tuesday in December each year (although this date is flexible), Rotary clubs are encouraged to sign up using the link below and take part in a second day out for disadvantaged children. Quite simply, one day out is not enough!



We receive feedback constantly from families and carers about the benefit of the National Rotary KidsOut Day and how it impacts the children.
