Polio publicity news

Rotary in London will mark Rotary's 107th Birthday on the evening of 23rd February 2012 - by lighting up the Tower of London beaming the words "End Polio Now" and the Rotary wheel onto the iconic and historic White Tower. This will form part of a global campaign by Rotary International with iconic buildings being lit up with the same message across the world.

The Tower of London has special significance in 2012 as the Olympic Torch will be housed there overnight when it arrives in London in July for the start of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The lighting up will happen at around 6pm.
