Meningitis Awareness Week!

Meningitis is one of those illnesses that we all fear. Awareness has become the watch word and many campaigns have attempted to make us all aware of potential symptoms. Every Time a child is ill we furiously check for spots, stiff necks etc. From a personal perspective I know just how devastating it can be; several years ago now I attended a BBQ with some neighbours including a young family with two children. Just a short while later those children were left without their Mother when she died from this awful disease.

So when I was contacted by the Meningitis Research Foundation and asked to share this short video I was happy to agree. If after watching you’d like to support this cause then please visit and add your support to this wonderful campaign.
