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!
You can help by donning our signature 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.
Large school? Consider hosting a dress down day or Wear Orange Day instead of ordering wigs for every child. We can provide stickers too.
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. Learn about Orange Wig Day in four steps!
Orange Wig Day is a great learning opportunity. Check out our downloadable activity sheets and use a portion of the day to educate children about severe allergies and what they can do to keep their allergic classmates safe and included.

We’ve got lots of great fundraising ideas and awareness raising resources to download help you prepare for Orange Wig Day.
