Rotakids at Clee Hill School planting purple crocus for End-Polio-Now

 

Stokesay Primary School help to End Polio Now

On Wednesday March 22nd Ludlow Rotarians Sue and Philippa were invited to a Mothers Day Tea at Stokesay Primary School. Mrs Pam Price, the school’s business manager, has for many years supported the school’s Rotary Junior Community Award scheme and now is encouraging children to join Rotakids, a new and exciting initiative designed to help young people grow into responsible citizens.

The Year 6 pupils have been working on Purple4Polio and prepared a display board with information about Polio. The hall was decorated with purple table cloths, napkins and flowers. The proceeds of the raffle, which included some jars of Purple4Polio jam, will be donated to Ludlow Rotary Club for End Polio Now.

 

Sue spoke briefly about End Polio Now, and thanked the school for their efforts in raising funds. She explained the importance of ending Polio and the way in which the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation add two pounds to every one raised by Rotary for End Polio Now. The school were holding a second event on Friday March 24. The total from the raffle was a tremendous £73. This will enable almost 550 children to receive protection against polio.
