A day of rollercoasters and rides was enjoyed by a group of pupils who were picked to go on the Rotary Club Kids Out day to Thorpe Park.
Fifty children from Larchfield Primary, Bargeman Road and Riverside Primary, Cookham Road, were treated to a day at Thorpe Park as part of a national Rotary Club scheme.
The Rotary Club of Maidenhead led the outing, with about 10 volunteers accompanying the children.
Ken Rowley, a member of the community services committee at the Rotary Club of Maidenhead, said: “They thoroughly enjoyed it.
“It was excellent and we have had some lovely letters from the children about it.
“Kids Out is a charity and is done nationally, and we enjoy getting involved.”
The trip was on Wednesday, June 8.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
