Polio Eradication

Although polio has not been seen in Great Britain and Ireland for many years, it is vital that we continue our efforts to eliminate the disease worldwide in order that it can never return. Rotary clubs in Great Britain and Ireland have so far donated over £20 million (€24 million) to End Polio Now.

Our efforts to eradicate polio have been described as one of the finest humanitarian projects the world has ever known and Rotary has even been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The eradication of polio when completed will be one of the most significant achievements in public health since the eradication of smallpox.

To donate to the End Polio Now campaign please use our online payment option. If you would like to set up a fundraising event please visit our VirginMoney Giving webpage.

“There is always something to do and somewhere to go. I particularly enjoy the things we do locally when we work together and play together and have a lot of fun in the process.”
