£175 for Purple Pinkie Day

We are delighted to have raised £175 in support of the Rotary Club’s Purple Pinkie Day. On Friday, we all donated money to wear purple for the day.

The Rotary Club are raising money to try to help rid the world of a disease called polio. There are still one or two countries where this disease exists. For every 50 pence raised, a child can be given medicine to protect them from this horrible disease.

Why ‘purple pinkie’? When a child is given their medicine, their pinkie nail is painted with a purple dye to remind the nurses and doctors. Well done, everyone!
