Join us and hundreds of others across the country to show solidarity and support whilst raising awareness and funds for people affected by severe allergies!
Your workplace will be the envy of all the rest when your staff sport our very stylish orange wigs to support people affected by and at risk of severe allergies and anaphylaxis on #OrangeWigDay in May each year. However, there’s nothing to stop you having your own Orange Wig Day or any event that helps raise awareness and funds for us at any point in the year.
We’ll send our signature orange wigs for your doctors and nurses – they act as an informal talking point to speak to people about severe allergies. Every clinic does it a bit differently, and we’d love to talk to you about how it will suit yours.
What is Orange Wig Day?
It’s our favourite day of the year! The idea is both simple and flexible: you and loads of other people across the country wear a very stylish orange wig (or indeed, anything orange) on Friday 18th May 2018. It’s easy peasy, and super fun!
Some people choose to nonchalantly wear their wig as they go about their daily. Others host Orange Wig Day parties, cake sales or coffee mornings. Workplaces have dress down days and yes, someone even accepted a dare to go skinny dipping in just their Orange Wig *
*The Anaphylaxis Campaign is not responsible for any bouts of hypothermia sustained during Orange Wig Day 🙂
