|Colin Powell fell ill with polio in 1949 when aged just 6 months old. An innocent swimming trip with father turned into paralysing his life.
Colin joined Radlett Rotary Club in 2009 and already holds the office of Rotary Liaison Ambassador from the British Polio Fellowship.
Colin not only promotes the global eradication of polio, but also supports those, like himself, suffering the horrendously of Post-Polio Syndrome with the British Polio Fellowship.
If you wish for Colin to be a speaker at your event, to maximize the value of his energy, it needs to be a large gathering such as a district, regional or national conferences, or similar.
He does not charge a speaker’s fee, but merely requests that he and his carer’s travelling and accommodation costs are reimbursed.
Despite being wheelchair bound, he travels extensively both throughout the UK and overseas.
Contact Colin by emailing direct to arrange for him to come and talk at your event.
