This has been my first year at the charity and it has been a privilege to lead the organisation and build on our successes of the last 30 years, as we move ever closer to our vision for the future where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need.
It's an ambitious target, but one that with your continuing support we're determined to achieve.
Thank you again for your support this year and we hope we can count on this next year as we continue our valuable research, awareness and support programmes for families up and down the UK.
Our offices will be closed over the Christmas and New Year period from Friday 22 December until we return on Tuesday 2 January. Should you need our support over this period we are here for you on social media and our founder Steve is available on the phone - he can be contacted on 07903 412144.
With all good wishes for the year ahead.
Tom Nutt, CEO.
