Rotary Club On Scilly Raising Money for World Polio Day Tomorrow

The Rotary Club of the Isles of Scilly will be raising money tomorrow for World Polio Day which takes place on Monday. 

Will was joined in the studio on Friday by John Read from the Rotary Club of the Isles of Scilly to talk about World Polio Day and the disease. There have been great developments in preventing Polio around the world but it is still found in Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

John said “We are so close to irradiating Polio but if we stop raising money we risk taking a step backwards and we could very easily see a rise in the disease very quickly.”

John and the team will be armed with donation buckets in Hugh Town tomorrow.
