Purple4Polio at Clitheroe Market!

Saturday March 25th.


Purple4Polio is happening today, Saturday on Clitheroe Market!

Come along and see the replica Iron Lung and make a donation that will provide immunisation for children around the world. Donate £1 which becomes £3 with the support of the Gates Foundation. £3 will provide vaccine for 15 children.
Many people who have already visited the Rotary display today have told us their stories of people they have known who have suffered from polio.
Also helping Rotary today are two GP's from Clitheroe's Pendleside Medical Practice, Dr Lucy Astle and Dr Vanessa Warren.
Lucy and Vanessa can be seen in our pictures trying out the Iron Lung with the assistance of Rotarian Sandy Morrison.
Please come along, donate and help save young lives, thank you.
