POLIO WOOD 2018
Plant a tree for only £5.00
and help eradicate polio
Back in 2014 the Rotary Club of Derwentside planted their polio wood and we began with over 500 trees. In March 2018 we will be planting a further 500 trees in our wood and in Crookhall, Consett. This is with the wonderful assistance from the Crookhall Foundation, in particular our friends John and Pauline Curry.
As usual, we hope our tree plant will raise fund for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign. Rotary International, with the help of our partners are now on right on the brink or eradicating polio from the world.
If you would like to sponsor a tree for only £5.00, please contact us. See details below.
