Team story

[p]Rotary Needs You - to [b]Fill Your Plate for Polio[/b] - with your help, we can end polio forever.[/p][p]Please organise your own fun #Purple4Polio [b]Fill Your Plate for Polio[/b] get together and help Rotary #EndPolioNow and forever. Simple ideas include:Pie and a Pint; Cheese and Wine; Bring Your Own Buffet; Frugal Soup and a roll; Tea and a Purple cupcake; Prosecco and blueberries; fish and chips supper; or anything else you can think of.[/p][p][b][u]Every £1 raised is worth £3 [/u][/b]as every £1 donated through Rotary will be trebled by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. With oral polio vaccine costing around 20 pence you could literally save children's lives and be part of making history. When polio is finally eradicated it will be only the second human disease ever to be wiped off the face of our planet, smallpox was the first.[/p][p]We must reach every child everywhere with the vaccine as, until polio is wiped out totally, no child anywhere is safe from this highly infectious, potentially life threatening and paralysing virus. There is absolutely no cure for polio but there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and our partners use to immunise over 2.5 billion children worldwide. Unless we eradicate polio totally, within 10 years, we could see as many as 200,000 new cases each year, all over the world.
