Invicta supports Swale's Big Green Week distributing purple crocus corms and promoting the club
Swale Borough Council’s Great Big Green Week culminated with a Festival of Transport in Sittingbourne High Street on Saturday 1 October. The festival featured exhibits promoting the use of vehicles running on alternatives to fossil fuels as part of the drive to address the climate and ecological emergency.
Invicta showed its support and commitment to health and the environment with a stand promoting the club and distributing purple crocus corms the public. The purple crocus is the emblem of End Polio Now part of the worldwide campaign to eradicate polio which has been supported by Rotary since 1986 and is now very close to reaching its goal. There are now only a few cases of polio in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the ongoing vaccination programme is aiming to complete to job in the near future..
As well as combating polio globally Invicta’s programme also supports more local efforts to improve the environment, collecting tablet blister packs for recycling and planting trees and hedges in Milton Creek Country Park to enhance the habitat for wildlife.
