Leicester goes purple for End Polio Now day

President Sarita Shah (and a furry little friend) visited Leicester Cathedral, the Guru Tegh Bahadur gurdwara and the Shri Swaminarayan mandir on Saturday, October 24, 2020 — World Polio Day.

Here are the pictures that were taken on her city tour…

President Sarita and all members of the Rotary Club of Leicester Novus are grateful to the diocese, and the management committees of the mandir and gurdwara for helping the club to publicise, Rotary’s decades-long campaign in this way. Also, huge thanks to Sarita’s niece Karishma for taking the photos on this page.
