Following the Music Competition Rotarians were at Colwall Primary School early in the morning to greet pupils and parents and to paint their little fingers purple in return for a small payment of £1 to go to the End polio Campaign. A child in the developing world can be vaccinated for just £1, protecting the child against this terrible disease for life. When a child is vaccinated, they have a purple stamp put on their little finger. It’s a simple way to show they have received the immunisation. The Purple Pinky campaign is run by Rotary Clubs across the country to raise money, but also to increase awareness of the work taking place. The response was super with pupils and parents queueing to have their fingers painted.
In total over £400 was raised towards End polio Now from the two events.
