The Charities

I'm raising awareness and donations for two amazing charities. The staff of Soundabout and Meningitis Now work tirelessly to promote their respective organisations and make a difference to the people who use their services. But don't let me get in the way - please read on...

 

Soundabout

Soundabout works with schools, colleges children’s centres and other organisations that work with people with learning difficulties. Using interactive music sessions, the team aim to foster self-expression and interaction with students as well as encouraging the formation and reinforcing of relationships.

A small charity based in Worminghall, Buckinghamshire, the group has national reach and partners with numerous schools to deliver training programmes for both disabled and able-bodied students.

 

Meningitis Now

Rather than try to explain the reason for Meningitis Now's existence, I've taken a quote direct from their website:

Our vision is 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.

Meningitis Now continues to fund research into a vaccine for meningitis and, to this day, has funded over £12 million Spencer Dayman Research Fund. And they need your help to do more.

Virgin Giving Page

My aim is to raise £50,000 for these two amazing charities. Even a small donation helps. Awareness is priceless and if you aren't able to afford to donate some money, then please tell everyone you know about Soundabout and Meningitis Now, and the amazing work they do.
