It is the Anaphylaxis Campaign’s second annual orange wig day on Friday 17 May 2013. The aim is for members to wear an (extremely fetching!) orange wig all day to raise awareness and money for the Campaign’s work.
The Anaphylaxis Campaign is a UK charity which supports people at risk from severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). I can vouch that my family has certainly found the information on their website invaluable since my son’s peanut allergy diagnosis. As well as providing help and support to its members, the Campaign also educates sectors such as the food industry, schools and health professionals on the medical aspects of allergies, food labelling, risk reduction and allergen management.
So far, we’re planning to wear our wigs to playgroup, the park (weather permitting!) and the supermarket…
So, if you are in the Macclesfield area and see a lady with bright orange hair, with a toddler and a baby who’ve clearly inherited the same beautiful locks, then do say hello (or give us a wave!) and make a donation at http://www.anaphylaxis.org.uk/get-involved/ways-to-donate.
Photos to follow on Friday!

And here they are! Thanks to everyone at playgroup for your donations … and quote of the day goes to the lady who kept a straight face whilst saying “Dear, can I just ask … who does your hair?”.
