LAST CHANCE TO SUPPORT OUR DISTRICT PURPLE4POLIO 2019 CAMPAIGN!  DEADLINE 31st July 2019

We are trying for one last push before we reach the deadline of July 31 for the final orders of crocuses.  A box of 4000 corms cost £106.  Will your Club buy into the continuing struggle to eradicate polio? We are so close but the most difficult challenge is before us to reach those isolated villages against the backdrop of negative social media messages giving totally wrong information. We also need to continue to vaccinate in those areas that are vulnerable to re infection due to poor sanitation and limited running water.

Call Chris Darlington on 07591656531 or email at chris.darlington@talktalk ASAP to order your corms.
