News magazine letterbox

News magazine features all the goings on from Meningitis Now, and details of what’s to come for the charity, including campaign updates, fundraising achievements and up-to-date information about our support services and volunteering.

Introducing plans for our 30th Anniversary year, the front cover shows a photo of four young people who will form part of our Futures Garden at Chelsea Flower Show. The issue also includes details of Vision 2020, Our Story Wall and upcoming events to mark 30 years since the charity was established.

Within this edition of news we bid a fond farewell to one of the driving forces behind Meningitis Now - our Chief Executive, Sue Davie. Sue will be stepping down as CEO after 14 fantastic years at the charity and will be welcoming Liz Brown, who takes the reigns in April. Sue will continue to have a huge impact on the charity moving forward as one of our ambassadors.

In the latest copy of News you can also find out more about the work we are doing with students, inspirational achievements from those we have supported over the years and some 'off the wall' fundraising taken on by our supporters.
