Rotary Foundation crocus planting - Purple-4-Polio

 

Borderland Rotary is a firm supporter of The Rotary Foundation  to which regular contributions are made.  Since this is Rotary's own charity, most of the money is raised from the members themselves.

The Committee organises a monthly competition (or swindle!) amongst members, who make a donation to Foundation in order to take part (compulsory!).

Each year the Rhydycroesau Pantomime Group focus their unique talents in the production of a pantomime 'like no other'!   Borderland is fortunate in being allowed access to the opening night, the proceeds being raised for Rotary Foundation.  We are most grateful to the pantomime group for their generosity.

Purple for Polio


From this and other events, substantial donations have been made to "Purple for Polio" - the Rotary International programme to eradicate polio worldwide. For over 30 years their success has been outstanding, and many others are now involved.  Borderland work with other Rotary Clubs and have planted many purple crocuses to mark the programme.
