The Club was chartered in 1997 to meet the need for a breakfast Club in Cardiff to complement the other local clubs who meet in the evening or at lunchtime. We currently have 25 members. Club Meetings begin at 7.30 a.m. and last for approximately one hour. Our venue is the Whitchurch (Cardiff) Golf Club. Since inception, we have closely identified with the north Cardiff suburbs of Whitchurch and Tongwynlais.
PURPLE FOR POLIO: FUNDRAISING CROCUSES AND ROTAKIDS
We raised £305 at the coffee morning held in the Old School, Lisvane on Wednesday 8thMarch to raise funds for Rotary's Purple for Polio campaign. On top of the £305 we also received donations for the Tiptree jars of jam, all 25 of which were taken. With all the jam gone £54 can be added to the total so Cardiff Breakfast has more than achieved the challenge of raising £10 per jar of jam. The club is most grateful to our Secretary Sue and the Lisvane lady volunteers who provided the home-made cakes, scones and jam and who willingly agreed to donate all funds to Polio.
The crocuses planted by the club to help promote the Purple4Polio campaign, part of the "End Polio Now" project to rid the world of Polio by the end of 2018, are now coming into flower. The two pictures show crocuses in Cefn Onn park and at Bryn Celyn School. They are also in flower at the Rotary Garden at Whitchurch Library and in Tongwnlais.
It was an exciting
morning on March 10th at Whitchurch Primary School,Cardiff as 90 Rotakids, all Year 6 pupils entered the Young
Writer's 2016/2017 Purple 4 Polio Poetry competition.
The pupils with the help of their Form teachers had carried out a significant amount of research, which certainly paid off. Choosing three winners, one from each class was a difficult task as each entry seemed to highlight different issues surrounding the fight to eradicate Polio.
The three pupils going through to the District Final are Joshua Jenkins, Lily Harries and Ffion Elson (shown in the photo below). They were presented with Young Writer's 2016/2017 winning certifcates, prizes and purple crocuses.
One comment overheard from the sea of faces was 'I will never be able to look at a crocus again without thinking of Polio'
