In desperate need of your support

First published in Letters

Sir.–Every year, around 253 people living in Hampshire fall victim to meningitis. At the Meningitis Trust, we help families to rebuild their lives following the disease.

To support everybody who needs us, and to meet the increased demand we’re seeing for our free services, we doubled the number of community support officers who work in your area.

Our commitment is to provide support for life to everyone affected by meningitis. Our urgent challenge is to fund it.

To reach out to those who need us takes £8,000 a day – more than £5 every minute. Can you help with a donation this Christmas?

Donate on our website at or text MENT05 £5 to 70070.

–Sue Davie, CEO, & Natasha Hodges, Regional Fundraising Officer, Meningitis Trust.
