Meldrum Rotarians marked the organisation’s continued global anti-polio effort by wearing it purple at a recent meeting.

Their gesture came as one club member members, Sheena Clarke, travelled to India with 50 other Rotarians from around the UK to take part in a mass vaccination programme. Thanks in part to Rotary efforts, India is no longer on the WHO list of endemic countries, having been polio free for a year.
