SIR - As CEO of The British Polio Fellow-ship, 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 on to high-profile landmark buildings across the UK; we’re pleased to confirm the first landmark building as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge.

Showing well-known landmarks in a different light will allow us to draw attention to the issues surrounding 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 on to the building. Your venue will not only be part of something special, you should receive publicity for your building too.

It’s an opportunity to be part of an exciting project while showing support for British Polio members.

We’re urging anyone responsible for landmark buildings to get involved. Call Fatema at BPF on 0800 043 1935 for more information.
