Fundraising for Meningitis Now in your workplace is a great way to save lives and rebuild futures torn apart by meningitis, whilst having a great time with your colleagues and boosting your company’s social responsibility

Fundraising workplace

Benefits for your company

  • Great for team building and boosting team morale
  • It’s a tick in your corporate social responsibility box – showing other companies and the industry in which your company operates, that you are committed to helping others
  • It’s brilliant fun for everyone involved

Why fundraise for us?

  • Meningitis continues to devastate lives every day. It’s a brutal disease that can leave people fighting for their lives within hours. Your fundraising raises the profile of meningitis and gets people talking about it
  • We are committed to rebuilding lives torn apart by meningitis, but we get no central Government funding to help us. Your fundraising helps us reach and support everyone who needs us
  • Awareness saves lives. Your fundraising spreads awareness about the symptoms of meningitis, helping to save lives in the future
  • Ongoing research into meningitis is essential to help protect future generations. Your fundraising will leave a lasting legacy

Fundraising ideas

  • Want to fundraise for us, but need some inspiration? Let us help you
  • Time 4 Tea event. Make some cakes, gather your colleagues and take a well-earned break
  • Dress down day. Whether you choose to dress down in casual clothes (or even pyjamas), or dress up in your finest attire, it makes a nice change to wear something different to work
  • Auction of promises. From your boss making you tea all day, to your colleague doing your filing, enjoy putting your feet up for the day for us
  • Organise a quiz. Who doesn’t love a general knowledge quiz? Well, for those who don’t, how about a ‘match the staff member to the baby pic’ game? Great fun and one that really gets people talking
