Four members from The Rotary Club of Sleaford are preparing to fly to India, at their own expense, to take part in the National Immunisation Programme to continue vaccinating children against killer disease polio.

Over 3,000 vaccination stations will have been set up for the job, and Rotary volunteers will also travel to the remote villages to immunise children with the special polio vaccine.

Rotary International has been involved since 1985 providing volunteers to assist in the enormous task of immunising over a three-day period a total of 172 million children under the age of five.
