We also want people all over the UK to attend and create events in their community too. This can be anything from small bake sales to giant street parties.
Remember to keep checking our calendar for upcoming events.
And, if you would like to create your own event or attend a current one, or have any other questions, contact Carey.
When I told my son about the Anaphylaxis Campaign, he wanted to do something with his friends to help raise £100 which would pay for a severely allergic child to attend a workshop and learn to use an adrenaline injector. His friends were more than happy to join in and raise money and we held a Mile Fun Run in our local park. The event was really simple to organise and the kids loved it. Not only that but they smashed their target!

It was great to have an Anaphylaxis Campaign presence. There were many people asking a range of questions and needing advice, and we were able to direct them to the helpline too. The Free From Festival had the flavour of a local farmers market – small, friendly and enthusiastic but it was busy, especially in the morning!
