If you think meningitis only affects babies and young children think again. “it can affect anyone, of any age, at any time; it can strike in minutes and kill within hours“.

I was inspired to help the trust after seeing Channel 4’s The Secret Millionaire, when property developer Matthew Newbury met the trusts Young Ambassador Alex Williams. Both were inspirational characters. I was offered the chance to photograph the trust at Downing Street but declined as it conflicted with a shoot I’d already agreed. With hindsight I wish I’d found another photographer to shoot the party for me and met Alex as sadly he passed away in August.
