Raising awareness is easy but makes a huge difference. It can save lives and help people affected by meningitis to realise they aren’t alone.
How can you do it?
Utilise your skills – are you a great party organiser? A keen rugby player? An adrenaline addict? Or a social media whizz? Whatever you do, you can turn your favourite hobby into an opportunity to raise awareness of meningitis. Here are just a few suggestions…
- Crazy runs
- Pub quizzes
- Putting up posters
- Testing treks
- Sharing Facebook posts
- Sponsored skydives
- Fancy dress days
- Organise a children’s sports day with sack and egg and spoon races
- Charity auctions
The list is endless...
