Tom Nutt CEO of Meningitis Now said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen by Stroud Times as your Charity of the Year. Meningitis Now is proud of its roots in Stroud, where a group of parents set up the charity in 1986, following a tragic outbreak of meningitis in Stonehouse. We are always so wonderfully supported by the local community at our Five Valleys Walk every year. Thank you to Stroud Times for joining the fight against meningitis and helping to save lives and rebuild futures for those who are affected by this devastating disease.”
Co-founder and editor Ash Loveirdge said: “We’re pleased to officially partner with Meningitis Now.
“We’ve always championed their organisation, and we can’t wait to work with them on a closer basis and look forward to raising awareness of a disease that can affect anyone at any age.
“The team at Meningitis Now do a fantastic job and we want to showcase and support the brilliant work they do and in turn share this with our digital audience.”
