End Polio Now sponsored walk

Sun 29th September 2019 at 1.30 pm - 4.30 pm

Sponsored walk in aid of End Polio Now. The walkers gather under shelter before braving the deluge - it was too wet for outdoor photos!

Michael Taylor and Jim Gostick undertook the sponsored walk for End Polio Now on a 5-mile circuit in Teversal.

The event was organised by Rotary District 1220 and, despite the appallingly wet weather, some 60 or so people managed to make it round the course.

The overall total raised is not yet known, but thanks to the generosity of the sponsors Bingham & Radcliffe on Trent Rotary's contribution is in the region of £325. 

Rotary has been working tirelessly for many years to eliminate polio, in conjunction with the World Health Organisation and, more recently, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  With just a few new cases wordwide this year so far, we believe the end is in sight.
