Rotary Cinema Initiative 2021

To replace the cancelled National Rotary KidsOut Day in June, we are excited to announce the launch of a new cinema initiative to support disadvantaged children this summer!

The Rotary Cinema Initiative will provide children you support with a cinema ticket.

What is the new initiative?

Covid-19 looks set to influence and change our annual plans this year. It is highly unlikely that the National Rotary KidsOut Day will go ahead as per previous years, however we have an alternative plan with the Rotary Cinema Initiative.

Many Rotary Clubs are currently struggling to raise funds and for this reason, KidsOut intends to increase its support to Clubs that take part in the Day Out but also to offer an alternative to support disadvantaged children during these challenging times. KidsOut intends to offer free* children’s cinema tickets to help you support your local disadvantaged groups. The shared project will require Rotary Clubs to cover the cost of adult tickets and coordinate the distribution. KidsOut will be purchasing 20,000 tickets and aim to provide them for June, when we hope restrictions will be lifted.

*Please note FREE tickets are currently just for Odeon cinemas. KidsOut will subsidise £5 per child taken to non Odeon cinemas.

If your club still wishes to go ahead as originally planned, given the current Government Roadmap, KidsOut will still be offering a grant of £2 per child (not applicable for cinema tickets) Please register below:

If your club would like to order KidsOut baseball caps please register below:
