And the fantastic news is that not only did we reach that magic number, we went beyond it. This means that the first £2,000 that we raised has been turned into £4,000 and on top of that we made an extra £680 – bringing the total to a fabulous £4,680.
All money will go towards a new programme of financial support launching in Spring 2019.
Meningitis Now's Individual Giving Manager Megan Goodhead said, “This is an amazing total, we’re so grateful to everyone who donated over the last week and helped us reach our target."
“This will really help us when we launch our new financial support programme in a few months' time."
“Hopefully we will be using the funds for things like specialist equipment and therapies – all things that can really help someone living with the impact of meningitis.”
Thank you to all our supporters who helped us not only reach our total, but go beyond it. Watch this space for more information about our new financial support scheme early in 2019.
