Spread the word

Every week there will be a new hot topic on campus. Make your health one of them and get everyone talking about meningitis

Fight for now

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...

Need some help?

Look no further. Our teams work across the UK and will pay your uni a visit to have a chat about meningitis, what we do and ways you could help. Reach them at volunteering@meningitisnow.org (to arrange a visit or to find out how you can help spread awareness) or communityfundraisers@meningitisnow.org (for all fundraising enquiries).

You can also order posters to put up in your SU bar, halls and around campus, as well as signs and symptoms cards, which fit nicely in your purse or wallet.

Don’t forget, we also have our free Meningitis Now app for you.
