Bristol and Avon have pledged to raise £100,000 for Meningitis Now, to fund research into a vaccine to eradicate all strains of the meningitis virus. It’s our aim to get to our total in three ways: through sponsorship of personal challenges by our employees, our rebranded lorry dedicated to the charity, and in partnership with our customers and suppliers. We’re organising several events over the coming months and would really appreciate it if you could provide a donation and support us in reaching our goal. Meningitis is a cause close to our hearts, as we have a personal connection with the founder of the incredible charity, Steve Dayman MBE, who sadly lost his son to the disease.
For further updates as we inch closer to our goal of £100K, keep an eye on this page and our News Feed for more information of what we’re up to and how to get involved.
“Our research programme supports cutting edge, lifesaving research at leading institutions around the UK. We are hugely grateful to B&A Group for choosing to support our ground breaking vaccine project taking place at the University of Bristol. Their support of this project helps take us one step further to preventing this devastating disease.”
Rhiannon Conner – Research, Information and Support Officer at Meningitis Now.
