Tewkesbury-based Glenda, who has been a great friend to the charity for many years, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in March and died last week at the age of 54. She leaves her daughter Levana, who had both her legs amputated after contracting meningitis as a baby.
“Glenda was a wonderful supportive mother to Levana, who overcame huge challenges after contracting the disease,” said Meningitis Now’s former chief executive Sue Davie.
“She was also a brilliant fundraiser and campaigner for Meningitis Now, who worked with us to raise awareness and help prevent others contracting the disease."
"I will always remember trekking the Great Wall of China with Glenda, sharing an amazing evening at the BBC TV Centre for Children in Need with Glenda, Levana and Mark, and seeing how proud Glenda and Mark were of Levana when she received a Pride of Britain award."
“Glenda will be dearly missed by all of us in the Meningitis Now family, and our thoughts are with Levana and all her family.”
