Fun Day Fundraiser For Victim of Meningococcal Meningitis

Solution Sounds Fun Day for Kye day will now be held at Luton Rugby Club, Newlands Road, Luton LU1 4BQ on 27th August 11am until 8pm to raise money for Cosmic and Kye.

On Mother's Day, 8 year old Kye was rushed to hospital with Meningococcal Meningitis and as a result has lost both legs and will soon be losing his left hand and parts of his right.

Fundraisers are seeking raffle prizes for the day as well as people to turn up in, or lend  Superhero and star wars costumes. They are also welcoming any other ideas for the day.

Confirmed so far are the main stage, with various local musicians and a street dance group, a Reggae stage, VW and performance car show, Rugby skills,  and many things going on in the family fun area.

The organisers can be contacted at

Meningococcal disease – the facts

There are approximately 1,500 reported cases of meningococcal disease each year in the UK. This is the most common cause of bacterial meningitis.

Most people will make a good recovery, but it can rapidly result in death and leave people with severe after-effects.

Around 7% of cases will result in death.

Of those who survive, 15% can be left with severe and disabling after-effects such as loss of hearing and sight, brain damage and, where septicaemia has occurred, damage to major organs, loss or digits and limbs.

It can strike at any age, but most cases occur in babies and young children. The next most vulnerable group is teenagers and young people.
