Crocus Planting for End Polio

The children at St Mary's at Bromsberrow planted crocus bulbs for End Polio Now

The Children at Bromesberrow St Mary's Primary School, near Ledbury, planting purple crocus bulbs for Rotary's global End Polio Now Campaign.  The pupils paid to wear their own fancy dress costumes instead of school uniform and their efforts serve to highlight the need to eradicate Polio so that children of their own age in Pakistan and Afghanistan become resistant to the poliovirus.  Over 1000 bulbs were planted and the children were holding Harrison, The End Polio Now mascot bear and his cousin, presented to the school by Rotary for the children to name.  The flowers will make a wonderful display in the Spring! Thank you and Very well done to the pupils and staff and Rotary Club of Ledbury for all their efforts on this special Children in Need Day!

A message from the Head Teacher to Rtn Jan Long.

The children had a lovely time this morning and we have all had a good discussion about what is a charity and why it is important for all of us, who are fortunate, to give to those who are not.

Vey many thanks to you and Ledbury Rotary for involving us.
