A Wisbech supermarket has joined forces with a major charity for a two-week campaign.

Meningitis UK is linking up with Asda to help raise awareness of the disease and to support the charity's research to find a vaccine to eradicate it.

Chris Ferguson, events

co-ordinator at the Wisbech store, is keen to promote awareness of this disease after his 26-year-old daughter suffered from meningitis two years ago before making a full recovery.
