Purple4Polio


Purple crocuses planted by the Rotary Club of Crewkerne in front of the Luccombe Oak, at Henhayes, Crewkerne, Somerset, drawing attention to Rotary International’s campaign to eradicate the disease:
‘The crocus was chosen as the purple colour matches the dye on the fingers of children who have been immunised against polio. Rotary International have almost eradicated polio around the world.’
