Purple 4 Polio
The Rotary year 2016/17 marks the 100th birthday of our Rotary Foundation. As part of the celebrations of this anniversary, a major initiative is being launched to publicise our flagship programme “End Polio Now”, to ensure that we maximise publicity for Rotary and raise the money to get us over the line and finally eradicate this disease.
Rotary in Britain and Ireland has launched “Purple4Polio” in the recent RIBI newsletter and has in particular details of the new partnership between Rotary and the Royal Horticultural Society for the latest crocus planting campaign, with the target of planting 5 million crocus bulbs for Spring 2017.
