Meningitis survivors, Bad Manners lead singer Buster Bloodvessel and Big Brother housemate Anouska, have displayed their contrasting assets for a Meningitis Trust poster campaign. The Support for Life campaign will warn people of the long-term after-effects of meningitis. The pair appear on posters in the Trust's awareness pack to be sent to 10,000 GP surgeries and hospitals. The £10,000 campaign provides a contact helpline and alerts people to after-effects such as depression, exhaustion, headaches and mood swings. "We chose Anouska for her beauty and Buster for his beastly qualities to show that meningitis can affect very different types of people," said Jane Edmonds, a press officer at the Trust.
