QI of Rotorua, New Zealand

“Worked with district council to establish a sensory garden in a central city park. This was established about 20 years ago. Currently the club is in discussion with the district council to upgrade and replant the garden. In addition, members went to a special school and took the children out to lunch and to an animal park to give the parents some time off. Some members hadn’t worked with or been with handicapped children, so it was a learning situation for them.”
