Purple4Polio Rotary Grand Tour
A 4 Day Round Britain Road Trip to Support End Polio Now

This inspiring road trip across Great Britain and Ireland will run from 21st–24th May 2018. Participants will visit as many Rotary districts as is safely possible and raise money for the End Polio Now campaign. The Rotary Club of Upper Eden will participate in the form of a joint venture with Appleby Rotary Club. The clubs will be represented by the Murmansk 4, John Taylor and Alan McViety of Appleby and Arthur Littlefair and Roger Frank of Upper Eden.

A Note from Roger Frank, UERC Participant

Obviously a simple banger would not fit our past record which has always involved a transit. So a suitable old, timed out transit tipper truck has been acquired and work has just started in converting it to a suitable entry which will be called Mr Dumpy - the Ice Cream van was Mr Drippy. Our team name is Dumping Polio.

A Note from the Organisers

Take part in an event that you’re never going to forget and experience the legendary blend of fun and friendship that only Rotary can provide and raise funds for one of the most significant life-changing projects the world has ever seen.
