Tuesday, 23rd February, 2016, marked the 111th anniversary of Rotary International. On this day in 1905, Rotary founder Paul Harris formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.
Since then, Rotary has continued its commitment to service by providing clean water, improving maternal health, awarding scholarships, fighting diseases, and improving lives around the world.
To celebrate 111 years of Rotary, Rotarians from all over the UK climbed across the top of the 02, formerly the Millennium Dome, where the End Polio Now emblem will be raised to celebrate the incredible efforts of Rotarians across the globe in the End Polio Now campaign, which continues to be a key priority for Rotary.
Cllr Mukesh Malhotra, Rotary Club of Hounslow and Steven Kirupai, Rotary Club of East Grinstead Meridian were among those who took part.
