Evans' winning donation

“We’ve now got vaccines for meningitis C, pneumococcal meningitis and hib [haemophilus influenzae type B] and we’re almost there with meningitis B. That’s in the trial stages.

“We believe research is the way forward, so the money Jonny Evans donated will help us continue to fund our research programme, help us raise awareness of the disease and provide support to people affected.

“I can’t tell you how much funding like this helps. Every penny makes a difference. Thank you to Jonny for nominating us and Betfair for making it possible."
