Skegness Railway Station Community Project

2,000 crocus bulbs planted around the Skegness railway station.

On Thursday the 16th November, Students and Staff from Kime House at The Skegness Academy joined Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Skegness and Caroline Sharpe from Skegness Station to plant the crocusses. 

Skegness Railway Station Community Project

The planting of crocuses is to help raise awareness for the "End Polio" project supported by Rotary International and The Bill Gates Foundation. Globally Rotary has worked alongside other agencies to eradicate this terrible disease and we are almost there! The colour purple is used as this is the colour babies in poorer and remote areas of the world are given to show they have been immunised.

Skegness Railway Station Community Project

Hopefully the Skegness Railway Station will be in purple bloom early spring and the pupils and staff from the Academy will see the fruits of their labours.

The children learnt about how it is to be left with nothing whether through natural disaster or conflict. They learnt that for £590 a box can be purchased which can house a family of 6 for up to 2 years. These include blankets/mosquito nets/cooking equipment/solar lighting/water purification and containers etc

86 million people worlwide are displaced around the world with only 22 million displaced through natural disaster and these shelterbox supplies provide and essential support to aid rebuilding people lives and allow them to re-establish their family and economic viability and support for refugee relief programmes throughout the world.
