Ride to End Polio
by PP Pamela Lawrance Foundation Director
RC Carlingford & President Trish & Foundation director Pamela answered the call.
The challenge was to raise A$1 million in our District, towards ending polio, by collecting money at Carlingford Court during the same day as the train ride.- 28th September 2018.
We had a well decorated stall and a number of volunteers from 9am-4pm and hopefully achieving our aim of A$500…we will know on Tuesday !!!
Thank you to everyone who was able to assist me on the day- President Trish, IPP Dexter. PP Ed, R Norrie, R Joseph (photographer extraordinaire) and PP Geoff .
We had budgeted to give Polio A$1500 and any money that we raised on the day will also be sent.
Joseph , Norrie and myself took our cheque to the Carlingford railway station for the 5.30pm train and presented it to Mark Anderson from TRF, who was leading the challenge.
We all had a great day meeting past Rotarians, friends and generous folks throughout the day which really gives one a buzz. The only downside was a rather long wait in the rain, as the train was late …but we soldiered on!!!!! In true ROTARY fashion.
