Part of awareness raising for Rotary’s efforts to rid the planet of polio is the “purple for polio” campaign.
Millions of crocus bulbs are planted by Rotarians across the UK.
As well as brightening up the days of late winter the carpets of purple also draw attention to the effort going into finally rid the planet of this dreadful disease.
Some of you may be old enough to remember the epidemics we used to have in the UK. Now it’s only Afghanistan and Pakistan where the virus still survives.
Banbury Rotarians take a break from planting duties!
