Your Big Day

Rotary is committed to making polio a thing of the past. Now you can play your part in helping to eradicate the disease by taking your own walk down memory lane.

Your Big Day, an innovative and personalised video gift for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and more, is making a generous donation to Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign.

Sir Martyn Lewis, former BBC and ITN newscaster and founder of Your Big Day, explains that a close personal connection inspired him to make the pledge.

“My father, Dudley, was intensely proud of being involved with Rotary as a member and President of Coleraine Rotary Club in Northern Ireland.

“I have another close connection to this cause as my sister, Jill, was diagnosed with polio at the age of 4. From personal experience she and I can testify to the importance of the great worldwide campaign by Rotary to ‘End Polio Now’.

“I remember being sent away to live with my grandparents for a whole year while my mother, who had been a state registered nurse during World War II, refused to let Jill to go to hospital, instead nursing her at home. It was an incredible act of love from a mother to her child.”

Covering most of the last century, Your Big Day offers video gifts that take you back in time.

Each 6 minute video contains archive footage and news reports which have a connection to the date and year you have selected, covering everything from royalty, global icons, fashion, news and more, with your personal message appearing at the start of the video.

From World Polio Day 2019 (24th October) through to Rotary Day (23rd February 2020), every purchase of a Your Big Day video priced at £19.95, will include a £6 donation to End Polio Now when using the promo code POLIO at checkout.

Your Big Day videos can be ordered online at and are delivered digitally via email on a date and time of your choice.
