Hobbs Fashion Show

Firstly I am very sorry for the lack of postings! Let me fill you in with what I have been up to..


On Saturday night we went to the Hobbs Fashion Show in aid of Meningitus UK. It is a cause that I am pretty passionate about as I contracted a type of Meningitis called Meningococcal Septicemia when I was eight years old.

'Meningococcal disease causes life-threatening meningitis and sepsis conditions. In the case of meningitis, bacteria attack the lining between the brain and skull called the meninges. Infected fluid from the meninges then passes into the spinal cord, causing symptoms including stiff neck, fever and rashes. The meninges (and sometimes the brain itself) begin to swell, which affects the central nervous system.
Even with antibiotics, approximately 1 in 10 victims of meningococcal meningitis will die; However, about as many survivors of the disease lose a limb or
their hearing, or suffer permanent brain damage.[3] The sepsis type of infection is much more deadly, and results in a severe blood poisoning called meningococcal sepsis that affects the entire body. In this case, bacterial toxins rupture blood vessels and can rapidly shut down vital organs. Within hours, patients health can change from seemingly good to mortally ill'

I was very lucky that my parents spotted the symptoms in time for me to make a full recovery (although they were told by our local GP that I had a bad case of the flu) .Consequently it is a cause I am very passionate about.

So thank you Tom for the surprise VIP tickets (all proceeds to Meningitis UK) are here are some of my highlights from the show!
