End Polio Now and International Projects

A well as End Polio Now we have a number of initiatives abroad to help those in need and effected by disasters.

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years.  Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.  As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication initiative, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.

In addition to local communities and organisations we also provide support Internationally.

We donate annually to Shelterbox and Aquabox.

We sponsor a child in Africa via the Red Rubber Ball Foundation.

We put £1 coins in our Good News Tin when we have good news to tell.

Jointly with other clubs we have built two Sand Dams.

We have carried out a number of tools collections.
