Afternoon Tea raises £550 for Polio

The Afternoon was sponsored by both The Mercure Hotel and Waitrose which means all proceeds from the event are being sent to the Purple4Polio fund administered by Rotary International and means 1200 plus children will be vacinated against Polio helping to rid the world of this dreadful virus.

The recent Purple4Polio “Tea Party” organised by ‘Danetre’ Rotary Club was a resounding success.

As Guests arrived at the Mercure Hotel for the Event, they were greeted by a large bed of Purple Crocuses in full Bloom at the right hand side of the main entrance.

These were planted by ‘Danetre’ Rotary Club Members in the autumn of last year.

The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary’s worldwide campaign to eradicate polio; with its colour representing the purple dye used to mark the finger of a child who has been immunised against Polio.

‘Danetre’ Rotary Club President, Jim Shoesmith, welcomed all the families, friends and guests who attended.

Including the Mayor and Leader of Daventry Town Council, Cllr. Glenda Simmonds.


Who said Rotarian's don't drink?

Danetre Rotary visit a brewery


The weekly meeting of Danetre Rotary was a little trip to Towcester to visit the "Towcester Mill Brewery" and, as can be seen, beer was in plentiful supply. The following is a comment from a guest at the meeting posted on our Facebook page "Thank you Ian and Helen for inviting us I real enjoyed it sorry I had to rush of at the end. Hope you enjoyed your different types of beers!"
