Children and young people are an at risk group for meningitis. By fundraising for us, you can spread lifesaving awareness and reach young people affected by the disease, as well as raising vital funds to help in the fight against meningitis

Fundraising school

Why we need you

  • Every six hours a child will have to fight for their life when bacterial meningitis strikes. One of these children could be a pupil at your school
  • We are committed to rebuilding lives torn apart by meningitis, but we get no central Government funding to help us
  • Awareness saves lives - you can help spread the word about meningitis
  • Ongoing research into meningitis is essential to help protect future generations. Your fundraising can leave a lasting legacy
