Thank you hardly seems an adequate response, but nevertheless we’d just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who dug deep and together contributed a fantastic £21,626 towards our work through the recent BBC Lifeline charity appeal.
This will make a huge difference to our ongoing work to defeat meningitis in the UK within a generation and reach out to everyone who needs help, support and information following the disease.
Impact on fighting meningitis
The 10-minute programme, presented by our wonderful Celebrity Ambassador Lisa Snowdon, focused on our impact on fighting meningitis and highlighted the vital support we provide.
It featured our Executive Founder Steve Dayman and also moving contributions from supporters Harmonie-Rose and family, Joanna and Sophia Sloan and Julia Styles. You can read more about their stories here.
Megan Thompson, our Fundraising Manager, said, “As a charity that exists to save lives and rebuild futures we’re so grateful to the BBC for showcasing our work in this way and helping us to raise such valuable awareness.
Enormous thank you
“We’d like to extend an enormous thank you to everyone who took part in the programme, particularly Lisa, and all those who tuned in to watch.
“As we launch our new five-year strategy, Making a difference, every day, your generosity will help us continue to make a difference for as long as it takes to beat meningitis.”
