    Bill Honeywell and Malcolm Baldwin, from two East Lancashire Rotary Clubs, set off on 21 May 2018 to tour Britain in a 15-year old VW Beetle, on the Purple4Polio Rotary Grand Tour. The aim was to raise awareness and funds for the End Polio Now campaign, and on 24 May, nearly 1,900 miles and 25 checkpoints later, they arrived at the finish in Halifax, after visiting iconic locations in Scotland, England and Wales. Listen to this - for every £1 you donate, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will add another £2! We're so close to eradicating Polio for good - let's help that final push!

      I'll be writing a blog keeping everyone up to date of progress getting the car ready, planning the route, finding sponsors, and then - once the tour starts - updates on our progress. Hopefully lots of photos of the places we visit on the way. Here's the first instalment -

      Bit less strenuous than your last effort, but an equally good cause. I am old enough to have known people who caught this disease, and the regular outbreaks in Britain.
