Purple for Polio

The Men’s Society hosted an illustrated talk by Karen Wroe from Sale Rotary Club on the Rotary International project to eradicate Polio the world over. St Paul’s will be illuminated on Oct 24th for World Polio Day joining other prominent buildings in Purple for Polio.

During the talk the Vicar was presented with a thousand purple crocus bulbs to be planted around the church. The significance of purple is that it is the dye used on children’s fingers to indicate that they have received the polio immunisation.

The photos below were taken during the evening.
