Scleroderma Society fundraising volunteers

Volunteers needed for fundraising – Wear Your Gloves to Work Day: Friday 29 June 2012

The Scleroderma Society are looking for volunteers to help with a new fundraising idea that we are planning to launch in 2012. The idea is to get people to wear their gloves to work, school, the shops or even down the pub – wherever they go – on 29 June and collect some money for the Society at the same time. We will be asking people to get involved in the same way they do for Comic Relief and Children in Need – although on a much smaller scale, obviously!

By drawing attention to one of the symptoms of scleroderma in this simple, light-hearted way on World Scleroderma Day, we hope to raise awareness more generally about scleroderma at the same time. There are lots of different ways in which we can use the theme of gloves to raise money and awareness and we will be publishing some of these in the next newsletter.

In the meantime we would really like to know how many members might be interested in taking part in our Wear Your Gloves to Work Day campaign. Your level of involvement would be completely up to you. For example, you could get sponsored for wearing gloves yourself that day or you could do something bigger, such as persuade friends, family and colleagues to join in. If you are interested or would just like some more information about Wear Your Gloves to Work Day, then please email or telephone 020 7000 1925 with your contact details including your postal address by Monday 17 February 2012.

We will send you further information as soon as it’s available.
