PURPLE4POLIO TEA PARTIES
RIBI is planning a Purple4Polio Tea Party is on International Women’s Day (IWD) on Wednesday, 8th March, 2017, using the jam.
The President of RIBI suggets that, at the quintessential British time of 4pm on 8th March, Rotary Purple4Polio tea parties could take place all over Britain & Ireland with the support of both Wilkin & Sons (Tiptree Jam) and Typhoo Tea (whose CEO is a Rotarian).
It is also fine to have a tea party at a later date if that suits your Club.
