David Pease to tackle the London Marathon (for the second time) to raise vital funds for Meningitis Research Foundation

Last year, Inspire Catering raised a remarkable £35k for their nominated charity, Meningitis Research Foundation. This was achieved through a variety of events held during the year including the hugely successful inaugural 2017 Shine Ball.

Spurred on by his own personal experience of meningitis (as Owner David Pease’s daughter contracted the disease when she was 18) David took on the mighty challenge of running the London Marathon. Despite a shock calf injury and chest infection in the lead up to the big day, David completed the marathon and raised almost £7k for MRF. Determined to beat last years’ time, David is once again taking up the mantle to raise vital cash for the foundation.

To help David hit his MRF fundraising target, Inspire Catering are auctioning off a very special silent auction prize – dinner for up to 8 guests prepared in your own home by Inspire Catering’s Chef Director, David Hunt. The banquet will even be served by David himself! Find out more here 

If you would like to make a bid for this fantastic dinner party – just e-mail your bid to [email protected] – with your name, telephone number and your bid amount.

The closing date for all silent auction bids is 5pm on Thursday 19th April.  Please note that an invoice can be raised if you wish to use the prize for business purposes. The highest bid will be the winner.

About Meningitis Research Foundation

Meningitis Research Foundation is a leading UK and international charity that brings together people and expertise to defeat meningitis and septicaemia wherever it exists.

Their vision is of a world free from meningitis and septicaemia. A world where effective vaccinations can protect everyone. A world where people who do get the diseases get the most effective diagnosis and treatments possible. A world where people who are affected and their families have the best support and information.

The MRF has three goals: to see fewer people get meningitis and septicaemia; to see more people survive with a better quality of life and reduced disability; to have more engaged, informed and supported patients and communities.
