"Meningitis - Keep Watching" campaign

The Exeter Picturehouse cinema is to screen a special film highlighting the risks to children of developing meningitis. It's called Meningitis: Keep Watching - and will be shown to mothers and babies coming to the "Big Scream" screening.

It's part of a major new awareness campaign which is being co-ordinated by three west-based charities. Every week six families in the UK lose a loved one to meningitis and its associated diseases.

Here's a short version of the film, which has been produced jointly by the Meningitis Trust, Meningitis UK and the Meningitis Research Foundation.
