Purple 4 Polio Crocus planting

Eco Interactors and Rotarians planted 1,300 purple crocus bulbs at Long Eaton School as part of the Rotary  Purple4Polio crocus planting campaign, one bulb for every student and member of staff at the school.   The campaign is to raise awareness of how important it is to end polio now and forever.  Money raised from this project will be matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with all proceeds going to buy the vaccine to eradicate polio.

Councillor Abey Stevenson present Rotary Interactors with a cheque for their charity

Rotary Interactors were presented with a cheque from Cllr Abey Stevenson in the Ilkeston Mayor's Parlour.

During Cllr Stevenson's year as Mayor he held a 'charity pot'. Cllr Stevenson said "throughout his Mayoral year he had attended events with the Interactors and was aware of the work the young people were doing". He had decided that he would make the Interactors one of his chosen local recipient charities.

Rotarian Barbara James gave thanks for the cheque and said that they would be putting the money towards their 2018 Family Fun Day.
