Leyland Rotary is supporting World Polio Day, linking with local schools, churches and garden centres to plant purple crocuses - the symbol of polio eradication.

If you’d like to get involved email:


One of the most important things you can do to help stop Polio is to offer your time, money, or voice to spread the word.  Donating in whatever form you like helps a lot.  First donation  of purple crocus bulbs already received - thank you Avant Garden Centre, Leyland.  More donations welcome.  

Host fundraisers

You can help stop Polio by arranging a fundraiser.  It can be a walk, a run, an event, or anything else, and the cash earned will be donated to your local Rotary Club (Leyland), helping to eradicate the disease.  20p can save a life.

Vaccinate your children

If you have not already done so, you can vaccinate your children against Polio.  Because there are asymptomatic poliovirus carriers who can still spread the disease, it is critical to protect everyone by vaccinating every child.

President Jim

At the start of his presidential year, Rotarian Jim Costello outlined his hopes that in our 70th year we in Leyland Rotary will be able to expand our involvement with the local community.
