WE’D like to invite any of your readers looking for an adventure to join the Meningitis Now team on a trek in the beautiful Atlas mountains of Morocco.

By taking on this challenge, you will not only have an exciting trip to a stunning region of the world but also help us fight meningitis in the UK and move us ever nearer to our vision of a future where no one dies from the disease and everyone affected gets the support they need.

Sadly, meningitis and septicaemia continue to affect thousands of people in the UK each year and kill more under-5s than any other infectious disease. Help us fight back by funding research, raising awareness and supporting survivors.

The four-day Morocco trek will require a reasonable degree of fitness and determination and will include summiting Mount Toubkal, which is the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains. Toubkal is easily reached from Marrakesh and offers striking high-altitude mountain scenery, lush valleys and untouched Berber communities.

Fancy joining us? The trek is scheduled for September 7-9 and you can find out more by emailing me at michaelai@meningitisnow.org or call me on 01453 769024.
