Celebrating 25 Years of Allergy UK!
Allergy UK is the only charity in the UK that provides support for all types of allergic conditions – and has been for 25 years! We are celebrating our 25th Anniversary this Allergy Awareness Week, and encouraging everyone to get involved in the campaign to be more #AllergyAware.
As part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations, we’ve been taking a look back at some of our achievements to remember how our staff, volunteers and most importantly, those with allergy have contributed to our success and made us the charity we are today.
