Donation to Meningitis Research Foundation
Countess Peel, James and Sally Bethell had an excellent visit to the Meningitis Research Foundation Laboratories in Manchester in November 2015. Meningitis Research Foundation extremely appreciative of the donation of £40,000 from the Foundation.

It will be especially valuable in understanding and developing the new MenB vaccine
