"Our baby girl touched so many hearts and that will always be her legacy."

Pitching in to fight meningitis

Thirteen members of the SGI team tackled 54 holes of golf over three different courses in just one day to raise money for our work fighting back against meningitis.

They’re aiming to raise £350 each – a total of £4,550 – towards our ongoing lifesaving and life-changing work. Their total currently stands at £2,435

The award-winning international recruitment specialists took on their challenge on Monday 3 July at three courses in Essex – Woolston Manor & Country Club, Abridge Golf & Country Club and Toot Hill Golf Course.

They’re fundraising in memory of Primose Adey and a Forever Fund page in her memory has raised nearly £50,000 to date.

New and exciting adventure

Writing on the site her parents say: “Primrose was our miracle baby. She arrived against all odds and in direct defiance of the experts who said it was impossible for us to have a baby of our own. The joy we felt from the moment she was born was only the start of the happiest days of our lives. Every day with Prim was a new and exciting adventure made even better by our gratitude for what we had been given and the excitement of what lay ahead for our family.

“Primrose passed away from viral meningitis one week before her 2nd birthday. We were utterly devastated by her loss, but as the days have passed we have been comforted by the beautiful memories and tributes of those around us. We are overwhelmed by the love and support of our family and friends. Every tear shed an expression of love for this amazing girl of ours.

“Our baby girl touched so many hearts and that will always be her legacy. We hope that any donations you make can make a difference and stop any family suffering such a tragedy.”

Source Group International have been supporting us since 2020 through various events, including the Kew Gardens 10k, Three Peaks Challenge and the London Marathon.

Megan Simmonds from SGI told us: “The guys had such a great day at their golf day. They were up at the crack of dawn, some driving two hours to get there. They were all absolutely exhausted today though and a little quieter than usual! But, that being said, it was thoroughly enjoyed. One of them even enjoyed it so much he has decided to invest in his own golf clubs, so I think that speaks for itself.”

Grateful for support

Our Partnerships Manager Laura Williams said: ““We’re so grateful to Source Group International and everyone involved in the golf day for their support – we’re glad you had such a great day and the golfing weather Gods were kind to you.

“Every penny raised will help us fight the disease on all fronts – funding pioneering preventative research, raising awareness and supporting people affected by this devastating disease

“Support like this makes a real difference to those who are at risk from meningitis and those whose lives have already been changed forever because of it.”
