Our amazing volunteers

12th June 2016

We have reached the end of another volunteer’s week, where we like to say a massive thank you to all of our amazing volunteers including Community Ambassadors, Young and Junior Ambassadors, Volunteers and Community Volunteers

Volunteer week final
Our volunteers bring us one step closer to our goal of beating meningitis, tirelessly supporting us and helping to raise more funds, more awareness and reach more people.

We would also like to thank the many other contributors; without their help, our goals would not be possible.  This includes our corporate partners who support us through donations of their services, saving us much needed funds that we can spend instead on vital research, support services and raising awareness.

We also rely on our Scientific Medical Advisory Panel of experts, who have conducted world class research of their own. Their expertise varies from immunology, to vaccine development and genetics. Without them we simply couldn’t have our research program. We’re so grateful for the time and expertise the panel provides.

Throughout the week we bought you blogs and shared something different every day including first-hand accounts from our own volunteers and fun new ways you can get involved too.

We enjoyed having a catch up with our Community Ambassadors on Thursday 2 June, where nine volunteer Community Ambassadors and eleven staff met up at Meningitis Now’s head office in Stroud.

Meningitis Now Volunteer Week

On Monday 6th we had a tea and coffee afternoon with our head office volunteers.
