Purple 4 Polio Campaign October 2016 to Spring 2017
Planting crocus bulbs for the Rotary International Purple 4 Polio Campaign at Brinklow and in the Rupert Brooke Park and Chestnut Walk, Rugby - and seeing the results in March 2017!
For over 30 years, Rotary and its members have been committed to fighting to eradicate polio across the world. The number of polio-endemic countries has dropped from 125 to just three, with over 2.5 billion children receiving vaccinations thanks to the help of Rotary.
With eradication now closer than ever, Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland’s latest campaign, Purple4Polio, is designed to unite communities to engage in activities as part of the final push to eradicate polio for good.
The campaign ties in with the 100 year anniversary of The Rotary Foundation, Rotary’s own charity, which has played a key role in making polio eradication become close to a reality.
