A note from Bill Gates 

Rotary International started the worldwide campaign to eradicate Polio some 30 years ago. Rotary Clubs and individual Rotarians in District 1020 are very active in this campaign, raising a large sum of money towards it, and many have helped as volunteers in mass immunisation days. As the goal comes within reach, Bill Gates, a huge supporter of the campaign, sends the following message.

Donate to Rotary's End Polio Now campaign and the Gates Foundation will triple your donation.

The people involved in the fight against polio inspire me. I wrote them a thank-you note:

Royal Highland Show Wristbands


Last year the Rotary Club of Corstorphine organised for the fifth successive year a wristband project at the Royal Highland Show at Ingliston.

A record 188,000 people visited the show, and over 6,500 wristbands were issued to parents or guardians with young children, with over 100 Rotarians and friends from clubs across the district taking part over the four days.  The parents write their  mobile number on the wristband enabling a rapid reunion should the children and guardians be separated. The service was featured on the RHS Facebook page, and quickly brought in appreciative comments.
