Rotary in Clitheroe and Ribblesdale would like to thank all those who made donations during our Saturday 'End Polio Now' collection on Clitheroe Market.
Even with social distancing, using buckets on a pole, the total collected was £165.79.
But that's only one third of the story!
With the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation adding £2 to every £1 collected, our final total going to help eradicate polio is £497.37
Rotarians from both Clitheroe and Ribblesdale Rotary joined forces to make the day a success.
In addition Clitheroe castle was illuminated Purple for Polio over the weekend.
Polio is almost beaten, Africa is Polio free with only Pakistan and Afghanistan still having new infections.
