Andy Hopkinson

Communications and Press Officer

Hello, I'm Andy, Communications and Press Officer at Meningitis Now

The year you joined the charity

2011, as part-time maternity cover... and I'm still here (still part-time)!

A brief overview of your role – what are you responsible for?

I'm responsible for press releases and responding to media enquiries, blogs and case studies for our website and campaigns, including Viral Awareness Week and Winter Awareness. I also look after Meningitis Matters and our other published materials, including writing, editing, proofreading, ensuring they're on message and conform to our brand identity, and print-buying.

A fun fact about yourself

My most important task is running the in-house tuck shop - the Snack Shack - to keep colleagues' energy levels high!
