FRANK THE BEAR MOVES ON FROM THE HEART OF ASIA TO SOUTH AFRICA and IRELAND

Photograph: Frank the Polio Mascot on the Bridge of Queen Elizabeth 2Frank the bear our ambassador for “Ending Polio” has recently returned from a three week cruise on “Queen Elizabeth” which started in Singapore travelling to Port Kelang and Penang in Malaysia.  From there he gained his sea legs before going to Colombo in Sri Lanka and travelling on to Victoria in the Seychelles having crossed the line meeting many people who were very interested in his “End Polio” jacket.  While on board he was introduced to the Captain before he went on to Mauritius and Reunion Island leaving the ship in Port Elizabeth where he went on a trip to a game reserve in South Africa. Cape Town was seen for the second time this year where he met yet more people who were interested in his jacket.

We, as a club, are proud of Frank in his ambassadorial role in broadcasting Rotary’s role in ending Polio Worldwide. 

Frank having just returned and still with itchy feet to do more travelling was taken to Cork in Ireland to meet their Rotary President and surprise, surprise met Anne Thompson who he had met earlier this year in South Africa at the Rotary Club of the Hibiscus Coast   ‘Margate and Uvongo’ meeting yet more friends.

What more can we ask of our ambassador to promote the eradication of Polio.
