THE FIGHT is growing in Warwick against polio.
Members of Warwick Rotary Club have planted 9,000 crocus bulbs outside the Northgate Methodist Church as part of rotary’s campaign to eradicate the crippling disease world-wide.
Rotarian Trevor Jones, who organised the planting, said “ We have been fighting polio since the 1980s. We have won the battle in our country, but children in other parts of the world still suffer from this crippling disease which is preventable with the administration of a vaccine.
“Rotary has pledged to ensure all children are protected from polio. One of our members even went out to India to immunise the children.”
A riot of purple – the colour of the campaign – is set to be seen outside the Barrack Street church come February.
