The purple crocus have been adopted by Rotary International for the Polio campaign, as purple is the colour of a child’s finger showing they have received the vaccine.

Rotary club members have been selling crocus bulbs and all money raised goes towards the international effort to eradicate the disease and is matched by the Gates Foundation.
