Petra Stunt hosts ‘Snowflakes & Sparkles’ Event for Meningitis Now


Petra Ecclestone hosted young families in celebrating the festive season at a magical party featuring Santa and reindeer among other delights, raising thousands for meningitis awareness charity Meningitis Now.

Meningitis Now provides a powerful, united voice for individuals, families, communities, experts and professionals who know just how devastating meningitis (and septicaemia) can be.

They are saving lives by funding research into vaccines and prevention, whilst reducing the impact of the disease by raising awareness, empowering people with the knowledge and information they need to get urgent medical attention if they suspect meningitis.

Meningitis Now also rebuilds futures by providing dedicated support to people living with the impact of meningitis.  Snowflakes & Sparkles will play a part in raising the funds they need to deliver their work, inspired by the individuals and families at the heart of their organization.

Petra Ecclestone is a patron and ambassador for Meningitis Now. Philanthropist and mother of three, Petra is the daughter of Formula One mogul, Bernie Ecclestone, and became an ambassador having had viral meningitis aged 14.  Petra described having meningitis as “a moment that changed my life” and is committed to help raise awareness of the disease, generating much needed funds to lead the way on meningitis research, awareness and support.
