A CHARITY is urging people to create some summer sunshine for meningitis victims.

The Meningitis Trust, which does not receive any Government funding, is asking members of the public to organise a yellow-themed fundraising event at their workplace, club, school or nursery.

The Trust’s Laura Williams said: “There are lots of ways people can get involved, from a dress-down day to a cake sale.

“Each year we support nearly 20,000 people who have gone through the trauma of meningitis.

“We can only support those people through donations, so having fun with yellow will make a huge difference to the thousands of people that need us most”.
