Rotary Club of Tenterden

Ridding the World of Polio

Tenterden Rotary Club are delighted by the response we have received  from local charities, businesses, schools and community groups  in our fight to eradicate Polio worldwide.

Interested parties are being given Crocus bulbs to plant in the next few weeks as a symbol of the drive to completely wipe out the terrible disease.

The Crocus reminds us of the drop of purple dye which health workers use to colour the fingers of those children they have vaccinated in each country they visit.

Rotary International has been working with medical services and charities for many years and we hope by 2018 to achieve our ultimate goal. Already the disease, once common in Britain, is limited to just two or three countries so we are nearly there.

Crocuses have been presented to: Benenden Hospital, Travelux, Whitehead Monckton, Wood Church School, Hamstreet school, High Halden School, Rolvenden School, Tenterden School, Headcorn School, Bethersden School, Kent/Sussex Railway, Ivy Court Surgery, Tenterden Garden Group, Tenterden Horticultural Society, Sandhurst Church, Appledore Parish Council, High Halden , Parish Council, Newenden Parish Council, Wittersham Parish Council, The Rare Breeds Centre, St Mildred’s Church Tenterden, Kench Hill, London Beach, Tenterden Club.

And will be to Rolvenden Parish Council –  Summer 2017.

Tenterden President Clive Wilson says………    “We hope that the displays of purple colour next year will remind people that there is still work to do and funding needed to completely eradicate this terrible disease.”

Your local Rotarians will continue to do their part to support colleagues often working in difficult conditions in countries where the infection still exists. The ultimate  goal remains a World free of polio.

Any groups who are interested in receiving a donation of Crocus bulbs should contact Sarah by email on sarahwilliams2000@yahoo.co.uk


On Saturday 15thOct we collected in Tenterden High Street for Shelter Boxes to help the storm disaster in Haiti.
