Lighting up the Clocktower

Wed 24th October 2018

We are joining thousands of other Rotary clubs around the world in supporting World Polio Day 2018.

Herne Bay Clock tower

The Rotary Club of Herne Bay is joining thousands of other Rotary clubs around the world in supporting World Polio Day 2018.

Rotary members throughout Great Britain and Ireland are holding Purple4Polio events to raise awareness and donations for the Rotary campaign to End Polio Now and forever.

If you’re out and about in Herne Bay you will see The Clock Tower bathed in purple light as part of the club’s World Polio Day celebrations. The colour purple represents the colour of the dye placed on a child’s finger to show they have been immunised against the disease. With millions of children vaccinated every year, in many instances in the space of just a few days, this makes it easier to see who has been protected and who has not.
