Pupil power and Rotary help to stamp out polio worldwide

STUDENTS at Monks’ Dyke Technology College have raised £510 for the Rotary Club’s End Polio Now appeal.

Rotary Club of Louth President Graham Metcalf and Rotarian Malcolm Neal accepted the money from the pupils.

The club has been encouraging people to plant purple crocuses and raise money in support of the eradication of polio across the world.

A crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, polio still strikes children mainly under the age of five in countries in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Money raised will go to support immunization campaigns in developing countries.
