On Sunday 20th May, Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) were delighted to host a Member’s Day at Grimsthorpe Castle, Park and Gardens, in Lincolnshire.
There was a great turnout and 14 families (40 + people) came together to share their experiences of meningitis and septicaemia with each other, and meet the MRF team.
We set up our marquee in the grounds of Grimsthorpe Castle and used this as a base throughout the day. Families could come and go as they please, and take part in the various activities this beautiful venue had to offer. Families were able to visit the castle, hire bikes, walk around the gardens, sit by the stunning lake and visit the tea rooms. We also had a face painter with us throughout the day and a treasure hunt for the children. Being located at the heart of all this activity also allowed us to raise vital awareness of meningitis and septicaemia amongst the general public.
