Have your say

IMAGINATIVE fundraisers in Portsmouth are being called to go the extra mile for charity.

Meningitis Now is urging people to join its Mile Of Fun campaign.

The only rule is to travel is a mile.

And organisers are encouraging people to think out of the box when it comes to completing their one-mile route.

So whether it’s on a space hopper, dressed as a superhero, pushed along on an office chair, a three-legged race, a swim or simply a walk, the choice is yours.

Meningitis Now is a charity which fights against meningitis through vaccine research, support services and lifesaving awareness.

To join the event see mileoffun.org, email mileoffun@meningitisnow.org or call 0345 120 4530.
