Servis support for Meningitis UK

Servis will now be joined by sister company Electra in participating in Meningitis UK’s nationwide programme of fundraising events and promotional activities for which, to date, Servis has raised £10,000.

Servis support for Meningitis UK

Meningitis UK recently launched their ‘Search 4 a Vaccine Campaign’, which aims to raise £7m over the next seven years to help fund research into finding a vaccine to eradicate meningitis and septicaemia.

Although there is an effective vaccine to protect against Meningitis C, there is still no vaccine to immunise against several other deadly strains, including the most common – Meningitis B, which causes almost 90% of cases in the UK.

Commenting on this new development Electra’s marketing manager Gill Hewitson said, “Electra is immensely proud to be associated with Meningitis UK and as corporate sponsors will do their utmost to help raise the vital funds needed for life-saving research into finding a vaccine; so many families’ lives are blighted by this devastating disease and everything possible must be done to eradicate it.”
