Toddlers join the bug hunt

PEOPLE in Scarborough are being invited to hold a Big Bug Hunt event for local toddlers to help in the fight against meningitis.

Schools, nurseries and clubs have the chance to support Meningitis UK to stamp out a deadly disease which puts the under-fives most at risk.

Nurseries and playgroups in the area can get involved this spring to help educate youngsters and adults about the disease while raising money for vaccine research.

Fun ideas include a sponsored bug hunt, fancy dress, cooking bug cakes and colouring competitions.

Money raised from the Big Bug Hunt will go towards Meningitis UK’s Search 4 A Vaccine Campaign.

To register or find out more about the event and Meningitis UK’s work visit or call 0117 947 6320.
