In the absence of being able to hold our usual calendar of events due to CV-19 restrictions, we were able to channel our attention into increasing the awareness of meningitis focussed at young adults (15-24-year-olds) the second at-risk category of contracting meningitis.
The Meningitis Now Student Awareness Campaign last summer was funded purely by ‘a Life for a Cure’. This will be the 4th year that we have supported this essential tool to protect our nearest and dearest – a total contribution of £120,000. The campaign reached nearly 40 million listeners with the radio coverage getting the attention of Sky requesting Ryan’s story to feature in the Sky Daily Podcast covering Meningitis: Surviving, loss & the science. Please take a listen & share. Very proud that we may be achieving our sole purpose that some good must come from losing Ryan.
