For our Purple4Polio campaign in Swindon, we are going to plant 4,000 purple crocus corms at TWIGS Community Garden, SN2 2QJ, on Saturday 7th October.
In March/April 2024 all the purple crocuses will be in bloom.
Rotary started its campaign to rid the world of polio in 1985 and at that time Polio was endemic in 125 countries. Today, it’s in only two: Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Polio cases across the world have been reduced by 99.9% and over 2.5 billion children have been immunised.
The world stands on the brink of the complete eradication of Polio.
Please support us in our Purple4Polio campaign in Swindon this Autumn and next Spring..

Rotary’s second major donation, of £208,000, was handed over on 7th July 2021 when local Rotarians visited the Great Western Hospital to view the build progress of the nearly completed radiotherapy unit.more
We went to the races in March. It was a meeting with 10 races, 8 riders in each. It wasn’t at Epsom, or Haydock Park, or just up the M4 at Newbury. It was, of all places, in Wanborough Village Hall.more
