What is the Mile Of Coins all about?

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.

What are we planning to do?

We’re going to create a MILE OF COINS by laying 5,280 one-foot strips end to end, each to the value of £5. This will raise £25,000! Enough to protect 100,000 children around the world!

When and where will it take place?

In Montpellier Gardens, Cheltenham on Saturday 28th May 2022.

How can my company be involved?

We need sponsors for financial support for the printing of the Mile Of Coins strips and associated printed material costs. In return sponsors details will be highlighted on the 5,000+ strips and we will highlight your company on this website. Go to the Sponsors Page to see how we would promote you.

I want to donate. How can I do it?

It’s very easy and can be fun. Contact us and we will provide you with a Mile Of Coins card on which you can stick a combination of coins. When you’ve filled your card, return it to us and you will have donated £5. There will also be ways to be involved online. See the Donate page for details.

I'm only 10 and I don't have £5. What should I do?

We’ve designed the campaign around you! Just get hold of a card and then you can ask your parents, aunties, uncles and family friends to each give you a few coins for you to stick on the card. You’ll have fun doing it and pleasure in knowing that you are saving the lives of other children.
