Meningitis Now Believe & Achieve B&A Creative Day - Fight for Now

Registration is now open for our free B&A Creative Day on Saturday 16 November – but be quick about it because places are limited and will get snapped up.

A junk band workshop lead by The Junk Orchestra, painting, and creative writing with successful author and stand-up comedian Michael Hadley, are all on the menu for the day, which will be held at the Touch Base Pears Centre in Birmingham. 

It’s the latest in our series of Believe & Achieve events for young people aged 14 to 25.

Build confidence

“We’re encouraging participants to use creative activities to build confidence, as a way to de-stress, to develop new skills and to work together as a team,” said Ellie Murray, one of the Meningitis Now team organising the event alongside colleague Laura Williams.

“By meeting new people who have been impacted by meningitis or getting back together with those they’ve seen at previous workshops, we hope these young people will feel part of a supportive community."

“This will be a relaxed event,” Ellie added. “If you or someone you know has been impacted by meningitis – either by contracting it yourself or having a family member, partner or friend who has had it – then it’s definitely the event for you.

Learn new skills

“You’ll learn some new skills and build your confidence, whilst enjoying a good day out at the same time.”

As B&A has become more established, interest in our workshop days has increased with each event, so book your place on this fun and free event soon to make sure you’re at the day.
