The road to eradicating Polio has been long and hard and we’re not there yet, but at least the end is in sight. For the past 30 years The Rotary, in conjunction with other organisations including the Bill Gates Foundation, have helped to get closer to the goal and have reduced Polio cases by 99.9% in that time.

Another small step was taken when the three Rotary Clubs of Oswestry got together at showings of the film, Breathe, the inspiring true story of a young man smitten by Polio in the 1950’s and his quest to change people’s perception of disability and be treated as other human beings in society.

It was a full house at Oswestry’s own Kinoculture and local Rotarians were joined by the Rotary District Governor, Beryl Cotton.
