We are urging people to sign up for a Three Peaks Challenge ­– to help fight meningitis on all fronts.

Whether you join as an individual or a group, you’re promised an unforgettable experience in the Meningitis Trust/Meningitis UK’s Three Peaks Challenge Team. The challenge, tackling the three peaks of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis in just 36 hours, takes place between Friday, September 20th and Sunday 22nd.

We take care of all the transport and accommodation throughout the challenge, as well as supplying a fully qualified safety team who will guide you on each mountain. On top of that, our friendly events team is on hand with fund-raising support and advice as well as training and dietary information.

The merged charity needs to raise over £10,000 every day to fund its lifesaving and life-changing services. Tragically, meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia affect thousands of people in the UK every year and kill more children under five than any other infectious disease. Meningitis can strike with incredible speed and the symptoms are notoriously difficult to detect, often being confused with flu.

We are fighting back on all fronts by funding research to eradicate the disease alongside supporting survivors with lifelong help and care.

To take part, or for more information, contact me on 01453 769025 or email beckin@meningitis-trust.org. Registration is open on www.meningitis-trust.org.
