Following the sad news that one of our 3-year old patients, Ayesha, had passed away as a result of meningitis the team decided this would be an appropriate charity to support. The vision of the charity is that there will be a future where no-one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives. To be here for everyone affected by meningitis, spread lifesaving awareness about the disease and fund research into it, the charity needs over £3 million every year. Find out more about the charity’s work at www.meningitisnow.org
A sponsored cycle ride from Bristol to Bath has already taken place earlier in 2018 and 3 brave team members are preparing for a skydive in March 2019 to raise vital funds, and will be joined by Ayesha’s dad and his friend. Please check out our sponsor page and help support this cause if you can https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/aisskydiveforayesha
Please look out for the collection boxes at reception next time you are in clinic.
