The British Polio Fellowship is conducting a number of talks to its external partners throughout the country, explaining Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) and the work of the Fellowship. Wednesday 19 March at 7.00pm is the turn of the Rotary Club of Chislehurst.
As part of the charity’s work marking its 75th Anniversary, Information Officer Laura Skorupa will be speaking to Chislehurst Rotarians.
“Part of our ongoing mission is to strengthen our existing links with national and international campaigning organisations,” says CEO of The British Polio Fellowship, Ted Hill, MBE. “As supporters of Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign, we are keen to remind people that as long as Polio remains a reality worldwide, future generations will experience the debilitating effects of Post Polio Syndrome.”
Winchester Rotary and The British Polio Fellowship gathered in the city on 26 October 2013, joining forces for the first ever Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) Day and the End Polio Now campaign. The Mayor of Winchester, Cllr Ernie Jeffs also came along to lend his support. Such cooperation highlights not just the work of the Fellowship and the Rotarians, but the plight of those still living with Polio and the 120,000 people with PPS in the UK and the hope is these joint activities will continue in the charity’s 75th Anniversary year.
