Celeb Ambassador Seema backs New Year New You campaign

Andy Hopkinson | 11th January 2020

Our wonderful Celebrity Ambassador and television presenter Seema Jaswal is fronting our New Year New You campaign, to get everybody to take on one of our challenge or community events during 2020

Celebrity Ambassador Seema fronts Meningitis Now New Year New You fundraising campaign

Seema has written to local newspapers across the country to encourage them and their readers to get involved.

She’s also spreading the word through her social media channels, creating a short video (watch this space for this) and talking to her sporting contacts to help get the message out there.

In her letter she recalls her own experience fighting back from bacterial meningitis when she was just 16. Thankfully, she made a good recovery. You can read her full story here.

Lots to choose from

Her letter continues: “We’re inviting everyone to join us and sign up for a Meningitis Now challenge or community event as part of our New Year New You campaign. We have lots to choose from, to suit all levels of fitness and interest, including treks, cycles and runs, in this country and abroad."

“The serious point is that by doing so not only will you be getting in shape and achieving your personal goals, but you will be making a real difference to those at risk of meningitis and those whose lives have already been changed forever because of it."

“Money raised will help to fund preventative research, raise awareness and support those affected by the disease through Meningitis Now’s unique range of services."

Please join us

“Please join us if you can in 2020 - together we can make a difference and fight back against meningitis.”

So, if you’ve had enough festive cheer and are feeling inspired to get active in 2020, have a look at our New Year New You page to see what appeals.

We look forward to welcoming you to Team Tangerine!
