Global MSC Security has announced that it has chosen Meningitis Now as its charity for the Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition 2020, which takes place at the Bristol Hotel in Bristol, on Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 November. The annual event for professionals operating in all areas of the surveillance industry, will help the Bristol and Avon Group (B&A Group) to meet its pledge to raise £100k, for the only charity dedicated to fighting meningitis in the UK.
The B&A Group has already raised more than £75k to help fund the ground breaking vaccine project taking place at the University of Bristol, which is aiming to eradicate all strains of the meningitis virus. A fundraising dinner will be hosted on the eve of the conference and exhibition.
Last year, the Global MSC Security Conference & Exhibition raised £5,400 for The Lily Foundation. The Managing Director of Global MSC Security, Derek Maltby states: “Each year the surveillance industry proves its generosity and I know they will be out in force again for Meningitis Now.” He adds: “With so many fundraising events cancelled and postponed this year due to Coronavirus, it has never been more important to support our charities.”
B&A Group, Clare Raby comments: “We have made huge strides in our pledge to raise £100k for Meningitis Now. We are delighted that Global MSC Security has come onboard to help us to achieve and hopefully exceed our target before the end of this year.”
