Rotary club works with pupils to help polio fight

Have your say

A ROTARY club is continuing its fight against polio with crocus planting sessions.

The Rotary Club of the Deepings teamed up with Baston Primary School pupils to prepare the ground for its annual “Thanks for Life” Polio Eradication Campaign.

Youngsters from the school’s Gardening Clubs from the Baston Primary School planted bulbs around the school buildings.

Each bulb purchased by the club raises money for the campaign.

Organiser and Rotarian Tom Johnson said: “The children were very enthusiastic and seemed to enjoy the planting.”

The club will be raising money for its polio campaign at a bag packing event at the Tesco store in Godsey Lane, Market Deeping in March next year.

Donations are accepted by the club all year round.

l More than 200 trees will be planted across South Kesteven as part of National Tree Week.

South Kesteven District Council is asking parish councils which would like a tree to phone 01476 406080.
