Recruit UK, a specialist recruitment firm for the financial services industry throughout the UK, has selected Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) as its Charity of the Year.
Frankie Pailing, head Recruitment Consultant at Recruit UK said, “We are proud to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2017 is Meningitis Research Foundation. We’re impressed by the work the charity does helping in the fight against this deadly disease. As a disease that mainly affects babies, toddlers and teenagers, it’s a worthy cause that our team would really like to support. We’ll be hosting a number of fundraising events throughout the year with all proceeds going to the charity.”
Ian Beningfield, Head of Fundraising at MRF said, “We’re very grateful to Recruit UK for choosing us as their charity of the year. Meningitis and septicaemia can strike quickly, sometimes killing in hours, and leaving some survivors with life-changing after effects. The money raised will help us to fund vital scientific research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis, raise awareness of the disease and support those affected.”
