 POLIO: MORE GOOD NEWS

Our push to rid the world of the scourge that is Polio has taken a further leap forward.


At the UN General Assembly, Rotary joined other world leaders to pledge that we will contribute another $75m over the

next 3 years.


View a video of what is said to have been the most important meeting about Polio in the last 20 years.




To help us spread the word, major removal companies GB Liners & White and Company will have End Polio Now

stickers on their lorries.

PR SUCCESSES

Dave Fenwick and fellow Royal Wootton Bassett members pulled out all the stops to host A BBC Wiltshire programme in Dave's garden. 

This gave the Club and Rotary great exposure and the ability to promote membership, Shelterbox and Life Education Centres.

 



Well done also to Hereford for appearing in the most recent Rotary Today magazine.
