Purple4Polio ice cream

The perfect fundraising tool for someone with a sweet tooth.

A frozen treat making a cool impact.


Rotary clubs across Great Britain and Ireland have come up with lots of fun and innovative ways to raise awareness for Rotary’s polio eradication campaign and the latest project from the Rotary Club of Huntly in Aberdeenshire really is one for the sweet tooth.

The premier Purple4Polio Ice Cream was the brainchild of the Rotary Club of Huntly member Paul Robinson, and then ably supported by fellow members Stuart Wright and Philip Morrison who saw it as a great way to tie in with Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland’s Purple4Polio campaign.

Philip is a Director at James Rizza’s & Sons Ltd, an ice cream manufacturer based in Scotland, which created this tasty, blueberry flavoured treat which was launched in Northern Scotland in October 2016.

While the Purple4Polio ice cream is now available across the majority of Great Britain, it is not available in Ireland because Rizza’s do not have and Irish-based wholesaler.

Buying the Purple4Polio Ice Cream can make a huge difference to children by providing them with potentially lifesaving protection against this crippling disease.


As at 31st August 2019 Purple4Polio Ice Cream Sales have contributed to the equivalent of 25,164 polio immunisations


Ordering Purple4Polio ice cream

  1. When a Rotary club or other organisation, group or business buys the ice cream, a contribution towards immunisation has already been included in the price they pay. For example, when a 12 pack of 125 ml tubs is bought, this contributes to 12 polio immunisations. With a pack of 1 litre tub, this rises to 18 polio immunisations.
  2. Non-Rotary organisations – If you make any profits by selling the ice cream at more than the recommended selling price we would love you to donate the surplus to the Rotary End Polio Now campaign. You can do this by contacting your local Rotary club or by sending the money directly to The Rotary Foundation team at the Rotary Support Centre. You can do this by cheque, or by contacting the team directly.
  3. Rotary clubs – Any profits that a Rotary club makes by selling the ice cream at more than the recommended selling price should be paid across to Rotary Foundation UK and don’t forget to indicate it is End Polio Now giving when you send it in so it can be credited to your club’s polio contributions.


Start planning now how you can use the Purple4Polio ice cream – as dessert at a dinner event, selling ice creams at a summer fete, children’s parties, helping with polio fundraising by Interact and RotaKids and any other great ways you can think of to have Purple4Polio fun and raise the profile of Rotary and End Polio Now!
