21 Children Scratch and dig for Joy!

On 6 October the Rotary Club of Wynberg took 21 young children to  enjoy a day scratching for gems at Simonstown Scratch Patch and lunch at the beach.

Rotary later provided yummy fish and chips which was enjoyed at Seafourth Beach Simonstown where the children spent hours playing in the sand while the water washed up and kept them cool.
