I am delighted to welcome Liz Brown as our new Chief Executive.
Liz joins us at a very exciting time as we celebrate 30 years of fighting Meningitis and helping people who have suffered from this disease. Liz has extensive experience of charities in the health and criminal justice sector, working with volunteers in a number of varied settings. She is looking forward to working with our team, volunteers, families and supporters to continue the drive to save lives and rebuild futures.
We say goodbye to Sue Davie, who in her last month with Meningitis Now has played such a prominent role in articulating the need to extend the MenB vaccine programme to the under 5s during the intensive media coverage of the petition signed by more than 800,000 people. Sue has most ably led the charity for the last 9 years including leading and completing the merger of Meningitis Trust and Meningitis UK. We thank her for all her efforts. Sue will become a volunteer Ambassador and we look forward to seeing her in the future.
Alastair Irvine, Head of the Board of Trustees, Meningitis Now
