Thank you for your support

Madam,

I am writing to say thank you to everyone from Derbyshire who supported the Meningitis Trust during 2011.

At the Trust we rely on the generosity of individuals to continue our vital work; supporting anyone affected by meningitis with free professional services, as well as raising lifesaving awareness of the disease and its symptoms. For the many people who have been, and continue to be, affected by meningitis, and for those who will sadly be affected in the future, we are a lifeline.

every one who has been affected.

We need to raise more than £8,000 every day – that’s £3 million a year – to continue our work helping people after meningitis.

We would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who signed our Education campaign petition, which has now reached 4000. Thanks to you, we are well on our way to make sure every child who survives meningitis is automatically assessed for educational needs.

We need a total of 10,000 signatures to take our fight to Downing Street, so please keep spreading the word to your friends and family. There are several ways you can get involved, visit www.MeningitisChangesFutures.com to find out more.
