Rotary Club of Reading

THE ROTARY CLUB OF READING TAKES UP THE INTERNATIONAL ROTARY CROCUS CAMPAIGN CHALLENGE, 2017

The purple crocuses are a symbol of the purple dye that is used to mark the fingers of the children who have received their Polio immunisation. Whilst Rtn. Marilyn Grundrill dealt with the requests, fellow Rotarians, Bill Montague, Richard Stone and Jack Holt delivered the orders to the relevant schools. An excellent job well done, thank you!
We all look forward to seeing pictures of the blooms next Spring!
Polio Eradication Programme:
In 1988 around 1,000 people every day were getting Polio. Polio was present in over 125 countries. Then Rotary, followed by the World Health Organisation and some other organisations decided to try and remove Polio from the world. Microsoft's Bill Gates is a keen supporter of this project and matches Rotary donations 2-1.
