The 1090 Foundation Committee is calling for nominations from Clubs for ‘People of Action Polio Awards’ organised by RGB&I.

Rotary GB&I’s People of Action Polio Awards recognise significant non-financial contributions for a Polio free world by Rotarian and non-Rotarian individuals, clubs, groups, companies and organisations in these islands.

This is an opportunity to recognise and say thank you each year to those who have led by example and inspired others to help Rotary End Polio Now and forever.

For more information, please see the Nomination Guidelines. Applications should be made by 20th August 2021 on the Nomination Form.
