Meningitis Now's Biggest Challenge

5th August 2020

Meningitis Now are facing our biggest ever challenge. Will you stand with us? 

Meningitis Now founder Steve Dayman - Biggest Challenge

The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on all our lives. One thing that has been significantly affected is fundraising and this is very much the case here at Meningitis Now. 

With events cancelled and much of our usual fundraising unable to happen as normal, we face a big drop in our income.

Simply put, we don’t have enough money to continue all our vital work – funding research, raising awareness and providing support for those affected by meningitis.

Over the past 35 years, Meningitis Now have been proud to be there for people as they have faced what is for many, their biggest challenge – meningitis. Now we face our biggest challenge – the unprecedented impact that this pandemic has had on our fundraising income.

We are asking our supporters to stand with us as we face our Biggest Challenge.

Made a historic difference

Meningitis Now’s Executive Founder Steve Dayman says, “When we first set up this charity, there were no vaccines to prevent meningitis, very little support for families who were suffering the trauma it caused and no public awareness whatsoever. It was a huge challenge, but people nationwide rallied to our fight against meningitis – and together we’ve made a historic difference.

“Today we face another enormous challenge. The COVID-19 pandemic has hit our charity hard. And the fight is far from over. Please help us continue our vital work.”

If you can, please pledge your support today. Make a donation. Sign up for a virtual event. Take on a fundraising challenge. Raise money in your community.

The fight against meningitis isn’t over. Every donation you make will help us continue to save lives, rebuild futures and keep going until the fight is won. Thank you.
