Manaca School Project

Team Triathlon fundraiser

I am President of Roborough Rotary Club (the sponsor of Literacy in a Box) this year and I will be doing the cycling leg of an Olympic distance Team Triathlon on 6th September. Last year's President will be swimming and next years President will be running. We are raising money for Literacy in a Box and Right to Play but the option exists to support just one of these two charities. More details are on our Virgin Money Giving events page.

Southeast Asia is polio-free

Help us build on this milestone and eradicate polio worldwide

Rotary’s efforts to eradicate polio from the face of the earth received an anticipated shot of good news in March when the World Health Organization (WHO) certified its Southeast Asia region as poliofree. The 11-country region is home to more than 1.8 billion people and over 25 percent of the world’s population.

Rotary at Warwickshire Pride

The Club Raising Funds for Polio for Pride

The Leamington Spa Regency Rotary Group joined in with Warwickshire Pride celebrations Saturday 28th JUne, raising £160 for The Rotary End Polio Now campaign with a “Purple Prizes for Polio at Pride” tombola.  Why the colour purple?  Because it is the tiny dab of colour on a child’s little finger that indicates that that child has been immunised against polio.  Just £1 will protect five children. 

WATER-SURVIVAL BOX UPDATE 17 - 2013/14 - CHILE EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI

On 1 Apr 2014, a 8.2-magnitude earthquake occurred in the shallow depths near the Chilean coast, 95 km Northwest of Iquique. It was the largest in a sequence of earthquakes in northern Chile that started on 1 Jan 2014. A tsunami alert was issued for Chile, Peru and Ecuador, and later extended to Colombia and Panama; tsunami watches were issued for Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico. Timely alert messages allowed for the evacuation of close to 1 million people in areas with high tsunami risk on the coast of Chile and Easter Island. Six people were killed, around 2,000 houses near Iquique were damaged, and power and utility network interruptions, minor flooding and landslides affecting roads were reported.

WATER-SURVIVAL BOX UPDATE - PHILIPPINES TYPHOON HAIYAN

Thanks  to the very significant response of Rotary Clubs across RIBI and Scandinavia we were able to send a total of 800 Water-Survival Boxes that were distributed by our partner aid agency Humanity First to displaced families in the Western Visayas area of the Central Philippines. With your help we have since been gradually building our stock ready for ‘the next one’.

Appeal for unwanted hearing aids

Rotarian Paul Wood of the Rotary Club of Birmingham has collected over 21,000 redundant hearing aids to help children in developing countries who suffer from impaired hearing. As digital hearing aids replace analogue versions, Paul has been collecting the unwanted devices to give children in third world countries such as India the chance to hear for the first time.
