As CEO of The British Polio Fellowship, I’m delighted to announce our latest project to raise awareness of the late effects of Polio and Post Polio Syndrome (PPS). We’ll be projecting the colours of British Polio’s PPS Day emblem onto high-profile landmark buildings across the UK; and we’re extremely pleased to confirm the first landmark building as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge!
Showing the well-known landmarks in a different light will allow us to draw attention to the issues that surround those living with the late effects of Polio and PPS, estimated to affect around 120,000 people in the UK. We’re putting a call out to the authorities of landmark buildings throughout Britain that would like to be involved. There will be no cost; all we need is permission to project onto the building and your venue wil not only be part of something extra special, you should receive a great deal of publicity for your building, too.
It’s the perfect opportunity to be part of an exciting project that is sure to capture the nation’s attention, whilst showing support for British Polio members and the wider differently able community. We’re urging anyone responsible for landmark buildings across the country to get involved!
I’m really looking forward to seeing our colours on some of the country’s most iconic examples of architecture. Thank you to the Millennium Bridge for getting the ball rolling! Please call Fatema at British Polio Fellowship on 0800 043 1935 for more information.
