Purple Cathedral for one Night to mark World Polio Day

On Tuesday, October 24, the Bridge of Allan and Dunblane Rotary Club will mark World Polio Day along with other Rotarians across the country and with the 'Purple4Polio' campaign in full swing, Dunblane Cathedral and other buildings will don the colour for one night.

Since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative nearly 30 years ago, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 per cent, from about 350,000 cases a year in 125 countries to under 15. But mass inoculation has to continue to ensure the final eradication of the appalling disease. In order to sustain the progress, local club members will be raising money to support 'End Polio Now' – for more, visit endpolio.org
