Thank you for visiting Harry's Meningitis Research Foundation fundraising page.

Our son, Harry Mills, died from Meningitis on Thursday the 26th of April 2007 at the age of 11 years. A much loved boy, Harry always had a beaming smile on his face and limitless enthusiasm for sport and life itself. Our family; myself Richard, my wife Judi, daughters Marie and Jenny and son George are devastated by his loss. Harry’s short life was extinguished in a single day by this terrible disease.

Harry's story can be found at -

Harry has had a garden built in his memory at Butterfly World - click here to see Harry's Garden featured on the ITN News.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to donate: Meningitis Research Foundation will receive your money electronically and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in Gift Aid will be added to your donation at no cost to you.

Many thanks for your kind donation in memory of Harry.  It means a lot to us.

Thanks and best wishes,

Richard & Judi Mills
