Health insurer BCWA is supporting a national poster campaign highlighting the dangers of meningitis in association with its chosen charity the National Meningitis Trust.

BCWA has had close links with the trust for five years, awarding it a total of £150,000 for research into the devastating illness.

The health insurers has also appointed Southampton based Christopher Foster & Partners for its advertising and marketing account. Hertfordshire-based Knightfield Advertising previously held the account for six years.

BCWA are celebrating their 65th anniversary this year and the account will be managed by John Johnson, principal partner. He will be supported by Rob Archer, Jonathan Williams and Sarah Klinko.
