Helping to raise awareness for the charity Meningitis Now

At KR Saws we like to do our bit for charity and in a bid to help raise money and awareness we would like to share the following story.

Our applications engineer Joe Johnson is running the vitality 10k race next May in a bid to raise money for Meningitis Now.

This is a charity close to Joe’s heart, because back in 2016 doctors failed to diagnose his mother with pneumonia, this turned in to Meningitis which resulted in a severe stroke leaving her without site and limiting mobility.

Joe’s mother spent the next 6 months in hospital and In a very tough time Meningitis Now were very supportive, they helped fund travel money for Joe’s father who visited her every day in hospital and also funded therapy sessions.

As a thank you, Joe is now hoping to raise £2000 for Meningitis Now to help support other families suffering a similar situation.
