As part of Rotary International, we are committed to eradicating Polio, or to give it it’s full name Poliomyelitis ….. hence the title MILE of Coins. Polio is a terrible, incurable, viral disease which in the main affects children, maiming and killing them. Once in the body, it cannot be cured. The only protection is by vaccination to halt the spread of the disease. Rotary is a major contributor to the fight against Polio and here in Cheltenham we want to raise a significant sum to help to completely eradicate Polio worldwide.
