“It’s been a fantastic first few weeks with Meningitis Now – what an amazing team and I am blown away by the work of our supporters and volunteers."

"I felt really privileged to meet our Royal Patron HRH The Countess of Wessex last week at Buckingham Palace with our Chairman Alastair Irvine and former Meningitis Now CEO Sue Davie."

"I am looking forward to seeing our beautiful Artisan’s Garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show next week which tells the stories of 5 children who had meningitis. If you can’t visit it at Chelsea do look at the wonderful story behind it on our video clip, which will be up in the next few days. It will be featured on our new ‘Futures Garden’ pageBetter still, vote for it as the People’s Choice at Chelsea!  We are going for Gold and People’s Choice for everyone who has experienced meningitis.  I hope I can count on you."
