Being a part of the charity is a huge privilege and I will do all I can to make a difference.

I personally have not had meningitis but both my dad (who had it as a child, but made a full recovery) and a very close friend of mine did

This inspired me to me to get in touch with meningitis now and try to and raise money and awareness for the charity. This is something which I am very passionate about.

The first event I did was a drinks reception at the House of Lords which was very successful! I have also carried out my own research project on "whether there will ever be a feasible cure for meningitis" which taught me a lot.

I hope to do a lot for more events for the charity once I have finished my a levels! Being a part of the charity is a huge privilege and I will do all I can to make a difference.

    Hi I’m Fiona. I had Meningitis when I was 15, on the 4th of October 2011; it was just a normal school day. However, that was about to change.

    Hello, my name is Kiera. Many years before I was born, my parents had their first child, Dominic. Dominic contracted meningitis B at a very young age, shortly after he won his battle with cancer.

    Hi I’m Livvy. My meningitis story begins with my nephew Jack, now aged 8. When Jack was two years old, he became extremely pale and weak after he had been unwell at a children’s party a few hours previous.
