Allergy UK runs a series of annual awareness weeks to draw attention to the plight of the allergy sufferer. These weeks highlight the issues faced by those with allergies, and are designed to get people talking about allergy at key times throughout the year.
During awareness weeks, Allergy UK encourages everyone to get involved to show their support! Fundraising events take place throughout the weeks. Through Allergy UK’s helpline 01322 619898 and website, people are able to receive individual advice and download fact sheets on all aspects of allergy.
Allergy Awareness Week 2015:
20th - 26th April 2015
This year, we are focussing on the severe end of allergy. We have released new statistics which have shown a worrying lack of awareness in the UK and also the real impact that severe allergies are having on the lives of those suffering. Read the full story here.
We've also shared the story of one of our fab case studies, Penny. Watch her full playlist here.
As well as our 'Living in Fear' press campaign, we will be sharing more information on our Facebook and Twitter account during the week, as well as launching an exciting new fundraising campaign which aims to raise awareness of how scary it can be to live with an allergy.
