Club night in memory of Ryan Sweatman
17 January 2013
A club night is being held on Monday 4 February in memory of Ryan Sweatman, a student at Sheffield Hallam University who died from meningitis in January 2012, aged 19.
The event - ‘Blast From the Past’ is a 70’s, 80’s and 90’s club night and being held at Babylon nightclub in Sheffield city centre. Doors open at 8pm and tickets cost £3.50 in advance or £4 pound on the door.
Christopher Andrews, event organiser said: “We decided to run this event in memory of my friend Ryan Sweatman who sadly died from meningitis last year . This is a fun filled blast from the past, an event that will be packed with games, prizes, dance off and disco. A prize will be awarded for the best fancy dress! All proceeds from the club night are being donated to Meningitis Research Foundation as the family have been supported by the charity since Ryan passed away and they set up a Remembrance fund in his memory shortly after he died.”
Chris Head, Chief Executive of Meningitis Research Foundation said: “We are so grateful to Christopher for organising this event in memory of Ryan and hopefully the club night will raise much needed funds for our work. Meningitis and septicaemia can affect people of all ages, striking in minutes and sometimes killing in hours. Since the family set up Ryan’s Remembrance Fund in 2012 they have raised a staggering £26,095.08 which has allowed us to continue our vital research into the prevention, detection and treatment of the diseases and provide support to those who have lost a loved one or face a lifetime of serious disabilities.”
