The Rotary Club of Lindum Lincoln’s Christmas cards have once again proved a great success.
Eight-year-old Madeline Wade won a competition to design this year’s cover, and the cards have sold well to raise money for End Polio Now.
Project leader Simon Kalson is delighted with this year’s result.
He said: “The funds raised for End Polio Now this year are an amazing £5,651.74. Each pack of 10 cards sold at £4.25 inclusive of P&P and the profit per pack was £2.35, over 55% of the sale price.”
With the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation double matching the donation to End Polio Now is £7.05 per pack.
A club buying just 20 packs at £85 will see their End Polio Now account credited with £47, converted to US Dollars at the going rate.
Simon said that clubs should see the End Polio Now credit to their account by early December.
“Thanks also to the little elves from my club who came to our house and packed the cards and envelopes into the plastic cello bags of 10,” added Simon. “The Elves have now left the building.
The funds raised for End Polio Now this year are an amazing £5,651.74.”
“And thanks also to The Rotary Foundation UK Trustees, Rotary GBI Foundation Team, Rotary International Foundation Zone Coordinators, as well as all the District Foundation Chairmen and End Polio Now Champions.”
