DGE gets ready for End Polio Now Ride
Our next DG, Richard Vergette, from Isle of Axholme Rotary, is currently preparing to cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats. May 14th is the day! He intends to complete his journey on May 27th. Richard is raising money in aid of End Polio Now – part of the Rotary Foundation. Thanks to the work of the Rotary Foundation together with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Polio has been eliminated in all but two countries – Afghanistan and Pakistan. Many of you know that Richard’s father was a Polio survivor from the pandemic of 1947 and he will be cycling in his honour.
Contribute to Richard’s epic ride by supporting his cause easily online with Just Giving.
