Letter: Shoppers give kindly to cause

Through your columns I would like to take the opportunity of expressing thanks on behalf of The Rotary Club of Keynsham to the general public and, particularly, shoppers at the Co-operative Food Store in Broadmead Lane for their generosity in these difficult times in enabling us to raise just a few pounds short of £800 on November 30 and December 1.

Our thanks, too, are due to the management and staff of the Co-operative Foodstore for their help and support.

The proceeds of the collection will be donated partly to our local St Peter’s Hospice and partly to The Rotary Foundation towards the final sum needed to complete the final eradication of polio around the world. India has at last been declared polio-free and there are just a few small pockets left in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria where this pernicious disease still remains.

With your help then we are almost there!
