At around 9.30am on Thursday 27th June 2013, a coach filled with happy holiday makers left the Ex-Servicemen's Club in Bedworth on its way to Blackpool.

The departing Blackpool holidaymakers

This was the latest event in a successful community service project pioneered by the Bedworth Rotary Club many years earlier when it setup a partnership with a group of Blackpool hoteliers to provide organised holidays for people in the local community who might not otherwise get a chance to get away. In 2013, the Bedworth Rotary Club have been working in conjunction with the Nuneaton Rotary Club - sharing a coach across two different week long events.

A group of Bedworth Rotarians, including lead organisor Lorraine Cope, came to give the participants a "send off".
