BUCKS FIZZ AND BUFFET SUNFLOWER CONTEST.
Sunday, August 15th, 2021.
Newport Pagnell Rotary members, Inner Wheel members and friends enjoyed their first 'live' event since the Covid 19 pandemic ended our fund raising functions. In ideal weather conditions, taking place in a Rotarian's garden, over forty individuals turned up in support of a fun afternoon - Bucks Fizz and Buffet Sunflower Competition. Good food, fizzy drink and careful judging of the sunflowers ended with Sunflower prizes being awarded th Nigel Benson, Sue O Grady and Geoff Simmonds.
The proceeds of the event, over £500, were raised to support Rotary International's long standing project to eliminate polio worldwide. Any donations to Rotary's 'Purple for Polio' appeal are being supported by the Bill and Melanie Gates Foundation on a two for one basis, which makes the Newport Pagnell Rotary contribution worth £1500.
