Darts can help MS

Recently I have started playing Darts for the Rotary Club of London. It's a fun game, cheap to play and helps my MS with: Balance, Co-ordination, Fine Finger Movement and Adding up quickly with out a calculator! Children and people that may need to sit in a wheelchair can all play and there are lots of fab clubs and competitions all over the UK and abroad. Why not give it a go and even play for a team if you like it!
Here I am playing my first game for The Rotary Club of London, which we won and I got the highest score :0)

Helping people to see 2012 London Paralympics

The Rotary Club of London helped people affected by MS to go to watch the 2012 Paralympics' and share their experiences at a party at Rotary HQ in London. Many that attended shared very positive experiences about how the opportunity has inspired them to enjoy sport and plan for the future.
Thanks to everyone helped make this happen.

Can you help End Polio Now?

Today is End Polio Day that Rotary Clubs all over the world have been supporting for over 20 years. We are so close to achieving this as we have the tools and means to reach all children but need a little more help.
There are lots of ways we can all contribute. Here are some easy ideas:
#Raise Awareness of this need.
#Raise Funds in local communities.
#Reach Out to find support from business  networks.
#Encourage Advocacy so people understand and Government help may be found which is really needed or polio could rebound back to 10 million cases in next 40 years.
Check out www.ENDPOLIONOW.ORG to find out more, please.

The Nitrolympix 2012

The Nitro FM Radio team went to Germany to cover the 2012  Nitrolympix at the Hockenhiem Ring. Teams from the UK and Europe all participated in the FIA & UEM Racing meet.
The weather was amazing and all teams worked really hard to prepare and maintain their racing cars, dragsters, motor bikes and top fuel speed machines.
The Hockenhiem staff & British UK Nitro Funny Car racing teams also supported the USO that helps wounded warriors (injured war veterans) that have been injured while serving for their country. Here is young Thaliah Gibb helping, a junior dragster driver from the UK. A real star for the future.
Top Fuel Dragster driver Chris Andrews, our British hopeful, was also at the meet, racing for Lucas Oil along with many other amazing teams. Well done everyone and thanks for your time.
For further coverage and to watch some short Nitro FM interviews check out you tube:
