To coincide with the return of our Bee Allergy Aware campaign, Anaphylaxis UK has launched a brand-new fundraising initiative to help raise awareness of bee and wasp allergy across UK schools.
The Big Buzz encourages primary schools to take part in fun bee-themed activities from May to September. All schools can download free resources for ideas, print offs and information on how to set up their event from ‘The Big Buzz’ page. This includes sponsorship forms and a Bee Crown template for children to create themselves.
All donations received through this initiative will go towards the charity to support the growing number of people living with serious allergies and anaphylaxis.
Bee Allergy Aware is now in its second year following a hugely successful campaign last year. The campaign, supported by an educational grant from ALK, shares evidence-based information on this specific allergy, which for some people can be life-threatening. Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that requires an immediate emergency response and could affect anyone. That is why understanding the symptoms and what to do in an emergency is vital.
Bees become active around May time and wasps are particularly prevalent around late summer and autumn. Over summer we spend more time outside and the chance of being stung increases but there are numerous ways you can avoid this – and none of them involve harming an insect!
