ROTARY'S DREAM OF A POLIO-FREE WORLD
After twenty years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease. A strong push now will root it out once and for all. The funds that this Rotary club is raising will directly support immunisation campaigns in developing countries where polio continues to infect and paralyse children, robbing them of their futures, and compounding the hardships faced by their families.
The Rotary Club of Wrexham Erddig is consistently in the top three clubs in the District for supporting this worthwhile cause. Some monies are raised from personal giving by members using the gift aid scheme which allows tax to be reclaimed. Historically large amount of money were raised by organising Beaujolias Nouveau runs. IN 1987, the first Beaujolais Run raised more than £4,000!
In recent years, an annual Christmas Musical Evening has been held at Eaton Hall by kind permission of the Duke and Duchess of Westminster. Carol singing in the chapel is followed by more musical entertainment in the Long Room where a buffet and wine are provided.
