“Working with meningitis Now has been a true partnership, with clear and tangible benefits for our business, our staff, our customers and the charity.  We are thrilled to be associated with such an important cause and such a fantastic charity.”

Alan Halsall, Chairman - Silvercross

“Meningitis Now is one of our key charity partners and we have a strong and effective, longstanding partnership which we are very proud of.  Despite Meningitis Now having a relatively small team of staff, their outcomes are always extremely professional and the dedicated team are an absolute pleasure to work with.  We have a large network of offices across the country and we are always impressed at how the charity staff and ambassadors work with all our staff on key events and campaigns, providing fantastic ways for our staff to become involved in a wide-range of fun and creative activities.  Meningitis Now always acknowledge our support and has invited us to special, prestigious events they host.  They have also partnered with us on educational events and study days which are of great benefit to our contacts and our clients, as well as engaging with our staff on campaigns and fundraising activities nationally.  We hugely value the partnership we have and always thoroughly enjoy working together on a wide range of activities.”
