World Polio Day

Today is #WorldPolioDay!

Rotary Clubs around the word have been working together since 1985 to eradicate this paralysing disease from the face of the earth.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Rotary has helped to reduce polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

Amid all of the bad news this year it was easy to miss the great news that the initiative has now eradicated polio from Africa and that this disease which as recently as the late 1980s was endemic in 125 countries, claiming 350,000 children per year, has now been run to ground so that it remains in just two remaining places, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

You can help us finish the job by donating today - the Gates Foundation will match your donations 2-to-1, meaning your £1 becomes £3! Help us end polio at

Tettenhall Remembers 2020

The Tettenhall Rotary Club Tree of Light is the perfect way for you to remember a loved one, to wish someone good luck for the New Year, to celebrate a special achievement or just to send a message out to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

This year these most unusual times have offered us the opportunity to widen the appeal and to support small local community good causes and charities run by volunteers, rather than one named organisation, and which are in urgent need of support like those mentioned above.

We continue to connect with and be an integral part of our community not only asking you to remember a loved one but also to take the opportunity to remember those who have helped us, the NHS workers, your neighbours, local trades people and your friends who have brought the community closer together through this dreadful pandemic.

As this year has seen the 75th commemoration of VE and VJ Days, the 80th recognition of the Battle of Britain and the rebuilding of the War Memorial at St Michael’s Church it is also an opportunity to remember someone who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Your messages will be prominently displayed on the video display screen in the main window of Peter James Estate Agents on Tettenhall Upper Green from the last week of November until the end of December

All proceeds will help the work of local good causes so DONATE NOW to remember your loved one and to help make a difference in Wolverhampton.

Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year

The Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year awards recognises the achievements of young people aged between 13 and 19 living, studying or working within the City who go the extra mile and whose personal courage, achievement or contribution to the community should be recognised and celebrate.

The Award is run by the City's five Rotary Clubs and is dedicated to Tom Warren, a Wolverhampton Rotarian who become only the second Briton ever to lead Rotary International.

In view of the prolonged Corona Virus emergency we've had to take the difficult decision to cancel this years competition.

All nominations that have been received will be carried forward to next year's competition when their good citizenship achievements will be recognised in 2021.
