About Purple Pinkie


Purple Pinkie is a campaign by Rotary District 1240 to raise money to End Polio Now – one of the world’s biggest ever immunisation programmes. In its first year it was a tremendous success capturing the imagination of the public and to build on that success, Purple Pinkie is coming up with many more innovative ideas - full of fun - with something for all ages. 

Polio has no cure. It is a crippling and potentially fatal disease and children under the age of five are at greatest risk. However Polio is easy to prevent by vaccination that costs just 50p. When a child is vaccinated, they have a purple stamp put on their little finger – giving them a Purple Pinkie.
