Rotary in London featured on television twice over the Remembrance Weekend in 2018.
The first appearance was in the Lord Mayor’s Show on Saturday 10 November 2018 where some 25 Rotarians joined the parade with a traction engine, emphasising Rotary’s work in eradicating Polio from the world. Two Rotary Polio Ambassadors – Konnie Huq and Anne Wafula Strike – we interviewed by the BBC as the parade moved through the streets of the City of London.
The second appearance was in the Remembrance Sunday Parade at the Cenotaph in Whitehall. A significant group of Rotarians were seen in a telephoto long shot which was also broadcast by the BBC.
District Governor Mike Wren said, “I am delighted that Rotary’s contribution to our society is being recognised in this way.”
