Planting Purple Crocuses for Polio


The club spent the morning planting 5,000 purple crocuses as part of World Polio Day. A big thank you to everyone who helped and the great help we got from Eastleigh Borough Council – thanks Paul and Ali.

Rotary has been heavily involved over the years with eradicating polio and has raised millions of pounds from around the world for this cause. For every dollar we have raised Bill Gates has given $2! We are very nearly there and whereas 15-20 years ago there were hundreds and thousands of case of polio we are now down to less than 11 this year. Over 2.5 billion children have been vaccinated thanks to the help of Rotary
