Wendy went “purple” today as members of her Rotary group were encouraged to wear something “Purple for Polio” to raise awareness of World Polio Day. The club also raised £200 from donations.
Rotary, as an international organisation has made a massive contribution towards eradicating polio, contributing funds to help immunise 400 million children every year with a view to completely eradicating the disease.
So why purple?
Children are marked with a special purple dye on their little finger to indicate that they have received the polio immunisation.
If you’d like to be part of an international network that does amazing things on a global scale as well as locally in our own communities, then just get in touch with Wendy to find out how!
