A WALL planner could be a lifesaver for students.
The Meningitis Research Foundation charity has sent out a thousand of the planners to new students arriving in Huddersfield over the next couple of weeks.
As well as helping them plan social and academic events, the planners also give advice on the symptoms of meningitis and septi- caemia.
The foundation's 24-hour freephone helpine number, 080 8800 3344, also appears on the planner.
Many students have had the vaccine which protects them against group C meningitis and septicaemia.
But other major forms of the disease are not preventable by vaccine and the charity is keen that students know the symptoms.
Students are particularly vulnerable because they live in close communities.
Many have died or been left with severe brain damage, deafness or amputations after contracting the disease.
Denise Vaughan, the foundation's chief executive, said: "We wanted to provide something that would be practical for students, as well as giving them important messages about the diseases.
"This planner does both and will act as constant reminder of the symptoms of meningitis and septicaemia throughout the coming academic year."
