ROTARY FOUNDATION POLIO CHALLENGE.
UK Rotarians have been challenged to raise £1 million for Polio Eradication through the generous gift of 50,000 jars of jam.
The idea is simple – you buy a pot of jam from your Foundation representative (Bill Laidlaw) for £2. You then fill it with coins and give him it back. It is expected that the jar will take about £20. However since the £ Coin is going to be withdrawn this year it has been pointed out that the simple solution is to let Bill have £20 by paper money or cheque.
YOUR MONEY WILL MULTIPLY!! For each £1 you give Bill Gates will give £2. Thus the £1 million UK target could become £ 3 million.
SO PLEASE PARTICIPATE IN THIS WORTHWHILE FUND RAISER FOR ROTARY’S OWN FLAGSHIP CHARITY.
Give Bill a ring and collect your jam jar. Soonest possible – we want to complete the exercise by end June.
PS. Taxpayers can contribute even more by completing a Gift Aid form. Visit rotarygbi.org/gift-aid.
