“Our vision is a world free from meningitis and septicaemia”
Millions of people have already been affected by meningitis and septicaemia in the UK, Ireland and around the world. They are devastating diseases that can kill and seriously disable in hours. The Meningitis Research Foundation campaigns to ensure no one suffers from a vaccine preventable disease, through fundraising to support research into the prevention, detection and treatment of the diseases. They actively promote knowledge by freely distributing leaflets and posters to the public and health professionals, and work with experts and health professionals to develop and publicise guidelines to improve treatment.
Donations so far: £1000
From working with Manchester student festival Pangaea on their Space Odyssey event in January 2015, we raised £1000 to donate towards the ongoing efforts of Meningitis Research Foundation. The money will fund research into new methods of prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, as well as supporting those affected by the disease, and raising awareness of the diseases through a range of resources for the public and health professionals
