Wood Leisure Supporting Meningitis Now
Every year at Wood Leisure we are inspired to raise funds for a charity and last year, were delighted to raise over £7,000 for Maggie’s with your help!
We like to choose charities that we can relate to and this year it was an easy decision!! In early February, the Wood family and all the team were hugely affected by Meningitis and Septicaemia when Colin (founder of Wood Leisure) became critically ill within hours due to bacterial meningitis. Thankfully due to an amazing response from the infectious diseases team at Ninewells, Colin has been recovering for the last few months and so far is making extremely good progress – we are beyond grateful that he is one of the lucky ones!!
This year, we want to raise money for Meningitis as well as increasing awareness of the signs and symptoms to help others. Throughout the year our teams will be taking part in sporting events, doing fundraising events on parks and helping others who have been affected.
We appreciate all the support our guests, owners and teams do to raise money for our chosen charities – thank you!!!
