“This is a charity very close to my heart as they provided much needed support to my best friend’s parents when she contracted the disease at university.”
“This May, my colleagues and I at Knights 1759 supported Meningitis Now in their May Mayhem campaign, which is all about having fun in the workplace whilst helping to raise funds to support those affected by meningitis.”
“On Friday 18 May 2018, our Clinical Negligence team collected money at Didcot Parkway between 7am - 10am. We had a great morning and enjoyed meeting the many commuters who were very generous and happy to help with spreading the word and raising awareness of such a deadly disease. We are already counting down to next year’s campaign and can’t wait to see you there!”
Proud to help
“Jonathan Phillips, a partner in the Knights 1759 Clinical Negligence team, said: ‘We are very proud to help support Meningitis Now and the invaluable support it provides families affected by this horrific condition. We hope that helping Meningitis Now at the Didcot Parkway bucket collection has helped not only to raise much-needed funds for this excellent charity but also, to make passengers aware of the early signs of meningitis and the importance of seeking urgent medical attention.”
“On 28 May 2018, I also ran in the London Vitality 10k in support of Meningitis Now. It was a hot day and Mo Farah had already won the race before I had even crossed the start line. In the hot conditions, I completed the course in 1 hour 21 minutes, not too far behind the winning time of 29 minutes! The atmosphere was amazing and Team Tangerine had 27 runners who all kept each other going when we wanted to stop."
“Thank you also to the Meningitis Team for all their support before and after the race, we couldn’t have done it without you!”
Thank you Laura, and everyone at Knights 1759 for your support – we really appreciate it.
