SEVEN members of Grays Rotary Club rose to the occasion to celebrate Rotary International’s 110th anniversary on February 24th.
They scaled the roof of London’s O2 Arena and raised more than Â£1,000 to help end polio and to support the provision of fresh water systems for Africa.
More than 100 Rotarians from across the south east met at the ‘base camp’ to make the climb over the iconic landmark building throughout the day to mark the global organisation’s special birthday.
“It was great fun and good to help raise funds for such worthwhile causes at the same time,” said the Grays club’s vice-president Peter Minter.
The Grays club, which meets every Thursday lunchtime at the Orsett Hall, has handed over cheques for more than Â£10,000 since the start of January.
