Fundraising

Meningitis has affected our community in an incredibly devastating way. It could affect yours too...

Donating and fundraising for Meningitis NOW and Meningitis Research Foundation helps to ensure those impacted by meningitis are supported, and will help to build a future without meningitis.

Since the loss of George, his friends and family have been working tirelessly to raise money for both of the valuable charities and are raising awareness themselves. They’ve held football matches and galas, set themselves huge physical challenges and continue their conversations online to spread the word. 

Don’t let it take a devastating loss for you to get involved with supporting Meningitis NOW and Meningitis Research Foundation. Start fundraising and raising awareness today.

TOUR DE ZOGS

One year after the loss of George, 7 friends and family took on the challenge to cycle from London to Paris to help fund the trials for MenB vaccines in teenagers. Together, they raised over £13,500 for Meningitis Research Foundation. Check out Tour de Zogs website for more information and help support them on their mission to defeat meningitis by 2030.

PAUL'S MANY MISSIONS!

Since the loss of his daughter Izzy, Paul has taken on an impressive number of physical challenges to raise money for Meningitis NOW. . He has taken on the Three Peaks Challenge, the London Marathon, Tough Runner and Jurassic Coast 100km Challenge. Paul didn’t stop there, and has even worked alongside Ollie Ollerton from Channel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins.

CHARITY BALLS

As well as taking on physical challenges to raise money, George’s family have organised two balls to raise money for Meningitis Research Foundation. The two events, once in the summer of 2018 and one in 2019, brought together friends, family and team mates of George and include a charity raffle, meal and disco. Watch this space for any further events coming up! 

FUNDRAISING IDEAS

From cake sales and dressing down, to dressing up or galas, the fundraising possibilities are endless.

Head over to the Meningitis NOW website for some fantastic inspiration on ways to raise money.

Teens for Tomorrow works in association with Meningitis NOW as a signposting organisation to ensure young people know the facts around meningitis and septicaemia. Teens for Tomorrow is not a medical organisation and is not a charity.
