The coffee morning was hosted by Marion Smith in her house in Plymouth with all the proceeds going to Meningitis UK. Marion has hosted this event for the past 7 years and this year’s event was the best yet.
“We raised £1100 which was fantastic” – says Marion. Kohgan Art Gallery participated this year by donating an original oil painting “Arctic Tale” by Marina Korkina for a raffle prize.
Meningitis UK is a Bristol-based charity with a national remit and big vision. Our mission is to fund research to find a vaccine to eradicate meningitis.
“We feel that focusing on prevention, as opposed to treatment and cure, is the only way to successfully eradicate the disease and prevent its devastating consequences” – says charity founder who visited this year’s event.
Meningitis affects thousands of people in the UK every year, so developing a vaccine will make a huge difference to countless lives. Registered Charity No. 1076774.
