END POLIO NOW FUNDRAISER
25th Anniversary of Gryffe Valley Rotary - fundraiser for END POLIO NOWthumbnail view
Over the years the club has supported the highly successful Rotary International campaign to eliminate polio worldwide by organising immunisation campaigns. Polio is now endemic in only two countries and the number of cases per year of this dreadful disease has been reduced by 99.9%.
In the last ten years, Gryffe Valley has donated nearly £12000 to this cause, much raised through Annual Curry Nights in partnership with the Shimla Cottage restaurant in Bridge of Weir, often organised to coincide with WORLD POLIO DAY (24thOctober 2020 this year). The END POLIO campaign continues with the target of totally eliminating the disease.
25th ANNIVERSARY FUND RAISER for ENDPOLIO NOW
Rotary International has set up a remarkable matched funding arrangement that means that every pound donated is matched with five pounds from Rotary Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. So a donation of £20 will be worth £120 to the ENDPOLIO campaign. This is a great opportunity to make a big impact and donations are being encouraged. Please click here or see the Gryffe Valley Rotary Facebook page for details how you can donate to secure the top-up funding.
