Bagnalls Community Paintbrush recently sponsored and supported the Calverley Toddle Waddle, a sponsored walk in Calverley Park for pre-schoolers in aid of Meningitis Now.
Around 20 toddlers walked round Calverley park collecting pictures of wellington boots to raise money for Meningitis Now . Due to the combined efforts of all involved a total of £1600 has been raised thanks to donations, raffle ticket and cake sales.
The organisers were extremely grateful to the many local businesses who offered support for this very good cause, including Bagnalls and Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
Meningitis and septicaemia often happen together and can affect anyone at any age. Both can kill within hours and can leave those who survive with life-changing after-effects.
Meningitis Now’s vision is a future where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives. By raising money, the residents of Calverley can help to bring this vision closer to reality.
