Southampton team support Meningitis Now Charity

Southampton team support Meningitis Now Charity

The staff in each of our 12 Haringtons salons have chosen a charity to support. 

The Southampton team are fundraising to make a real difference to the lives of people affected by meningitis.

 

menMeningitis can affect anyone. It is the inflammation of the membranes that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord and can be caused by different organisms, including bacteria and viruses.

The impact of meningitis is devastating – leaving people bereaved or facing a future with lifelong disability. Even if the outcome of meningitis is a positive one, the trauma of going through the disease or watching a loved one fight for their life can remain

Meningitis can leave you bereaved or needing specialist support. Meningitis Now offer free services can help provide you with vital support when it is needed most of all, throughout the UK.

Their 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.

Through funds raised they have funded more than £12million of vital research.

To find out more about this disease, the charity and the work they do, visit the Meningitts Now website.

In support of this great charity, our receptionists will be asking you for a discretionary contribution of £1.00 with your bill (we would, of course be delighted if you could give more) and Haringtons will match your donation*.

We hope you will join us in supporting this worthy cause.

 

UPDATE:  We’re now in our third week of fundraising, and we’re delighted to let you know that the Southampton clients have raised a tremendous £125.26.  Thank you all very much!
