Rotary for Polio Eradication Worldwide
Rotary and The Bill Gates Foundation working together to eradicate Polio Worlwide
We hired a working model of an Iron Lung from RC Thornbury
We spent Friday 28 June at Doncaster Racecourse and today we have been at one of our local garden centres Ferndale to educate people about the horror of Polio.
The Iron Lung is at our local Sainsbury’s tomorrow before it goes to Ripley for two days, back at Bakewell at the free concert on Wednesday and at Coal Aston Gala before it returns home.
A total of over £1000 has been raised for the fight against Polio. The Gates Foundation will double this.
We must never be complacent about Polio there are still cases in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria and they are only a ‘plane ride away
