Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance

Organise a coffee and cake morning on Friday 12th May for Fibromyalgia Awareness Day!

The 12th May is recognised as the international fibromyalgia awareness day. Charities and groups around the world will be organising events to increase awareness of the condition. Why not celebrate with us and raise awareness by organising a coffee and cake event? This could be with your family and friends in your home, in your workplace, in a local cafe or even a picnic in the park.

We would encourage local fibromyalgia support groups and our supporters to organise coffee and cake mornings up and down the country. If it is your local support group meeting, then why not ask partners and friends to come along, extending the reach of the support group on International awareness day.

Requesting resources for your event

If you wish to order resources such as leaflets, booklets and posters about fibromyalgia, please ensure you place your order (free of charge) prior to Friday 28th April 2017, so that we can get them out to you in time. Orders must be completed via the resources form at Orders received after Friday 28th April 2017 cannot be guaranteed to reach you in time for your event.

If you plan to fundraise for Fibromyalgia Action UK, we can also send to you other resources to help with your fundraising efforts! For fundraising support, please contact or visit

After the event

We hope that your event is successful, and if there is something to share afterwards, such as photographs and a summary of the day, then please get in touch with us. We can then share with others how your event went on our website, Facebook and Twitter. Please send any information to:
