Launch of Knaresborough Rotary Christmas Cards
This year I have designed a special pack of Knaresborough Charity Christmas cards for the Rotary Club of Knaresborough to support fundraising for End Polio Now. Each pack contains six cards, two each of three different Knaresborough winter scenes and matching envelopes and is available for £3.50.
The first cards went on sale on August Bank Holiday Monday at Knaresborough Rotary Club’s Waterside Wishing Well site in Knaresborough. Cards will also be available on market day in Knaresborough on Wednesday 27 November and at the annual Knaresborough Christmas market on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 December.
Anyone wishing to purchase the cards in the meantime can order them from Rotarian Jonathan Beer 01765 676355 or e.mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Polio has no cure. It maims or kills children, mainly under the age of five. It is now endemic in just three countries, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria. Since the campaign was launched 28 years ago, the results have been astounding – from 176 countries down to the three – but we still need to eradicate the virus completely. Polio is easy to prevent by vaccination – just £1 will protect five children for life. The latest figures for this year (up to 21st August) are 192 cases worldwide, of which only 71 are in the endemic countries but 108 are from an outbreak in Somalia.
