THE Meningitis Trust charity is urging Derbyshire people to get involved this October by filling up collection buckets to support the thousands of people struck by meningitis each year.
This will be the charity’s biggest collection ever, so it’s time to take the streets to help them raise £25,000.
The Trust is planning a nationwide bucket collection across the UK for its 25th anniversary, ran by volunteers up and down the country who are all joining in the celebrations in their local community. With just a couple of hours of people’s time will make a difference; bucket collections are a way to raise funds, and raise awareness of the disease and the Trust’s support.
If you have a few hours and want to be part of the Trust’s biggest collection ever, contact the Events Hotline on 0845 120 4530 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and leave full contact details (including postal and email address).
