ROTARY CLUB OF ALTON
THANK THE TOWN FOR END POLIO COLLECTION
The rotary Club of Alton wish to thank the people of Alton for their donations towards the End Polio Now campaign in Feb 2017, The Purple Crocus Day raised £165.
The Rotary International Organisation has been raising funds for over 35 years in support of the eradication of Polio.
The last few years has seen a matching grant from The Bill Gates Foundation.
Together with the World Health Organisation Rotary funds have purchased the supplies to treat millions of young children in Africa and Asia. In addition every year many rotary volunteers visit the areas to assist in the administration of the serum.
Today the disease is almost extinct, cases reported are in single figures compared to many thousands a few years ago.
The Alton Rotary Club recently visited Granville our twin club in France where they celebrated 100 years of Foundation at Honfleur, Rotary district 1640.
Many Rotarians gathered on the beach and held cards above their heads to spell out Foundation Rotary as can be seen from the photo.
