Students helped plant crocus bulbs as part of a Rotary campaign to eradicate the disease polio.

Students took part in a scheme to plant 1,000 crocus bulbs donated by Rotary Club of Elthorne-Hillingdon as part of a scheme to tackle the disease polio.

The bulbs were planted at Uxbridge College under the Thanks for Life campaign run through Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland. The campaign aims to totally eliminate polio through an international immunisation programme.

The crocuses are due to make an appearance round about 23 February, which is Rotary Day. They will be purple and represent the dye of this colour applied to a child's finger after being given a polio immunisation.

Gavin Hughes, Director of Student Services at Uxbridge College said: "Uxbridge College is proud to support this vital work by Rotary and is looking forward to the show of crocuses early in the spring. This event has helped raise awareness of this important Rotary campaign, and given students another chance to support the work of our wider communities."
