‘Thanks for Life’, is a project involving the clubs and members of Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland, aimed at helping to eradicate polio throughout the world.

Thanks For Life is a purpose-built initiative, specifically designed to combine the talents and efforts of every Rotary club in RIBI with these main aims…

  • To raise £1m for Polio Eradication through the Thanks for Life initiative.
  • To maximise public awareness of the Rotary Polio campaign, the Gates Challenge and Rotary in general.
  • To increase membership.

Farnborough Rotary Club will join other clubs throughout the UK in helping to raise awareness about ending polio in the third world.

We will be organising a number of initiatives locally and hope to involve the public in our efforts.

There is a great site which details a lot of information about polio and how rotary clubs have been involved in helping to eradicate this disease.  You can click here to go to the dedicated site http://www.ribi.org/thanks-for-life

Farnborough Rotary Club will join forces with our other local clubs to visit schools to help educate local children.

If you want to understand the story of Polio and how it affected children in the western world, there is a great cartoon on the story of polio on the site I mentioned above. Or you can click on the picture for polio on the top right corner.
