A FRUGAL meal served up to Burnley Rotary Club has raised money to help fight polio in Africa.

The club has handed over £500 for a national immunisation day. Part of the money was raised by having the frugal meal instead of the normal fare at their meeting at the Alexander Hotel.

They donated the difference in cost to Polio Plus Partners, one of the chosen charities of president Roger Hutchinson.

Polio Partners is a partnership between Rotary, UNICEF and World Health Organisation to fund the worldwide administration of polio vaccine with the aim of eradicating the disease.

President and club's international committee member Richard Haddock presented the cheque to Polio Partners officer Bob Wright.
