Lots of support groups around the UK will be wearing the Fibromyalgia Association’s trademark yellow and black ribbon and other clothes of the same colours. While it’s easy to pass by someone with the condition without realising, it’ll be impossible (they say) to miss these bold colours.
If you or a friend has Fibromyalgia and you want to help then ask for some posters and leaflets to draw attention to the day. You can also organise your own fundraising day or become a volunteer. Visit the Fibromyalgia Association UK website for all the information you need about how you can get involved.
Fibromyalgia Association UK is a non profit making registered charity, which is run by volunteers, many of them are fibromyalgia sufferers and they work very hard to raise awareness of the cause. All donations will help with fundraising to allow the Fibromyalgia Association to continue with their work. You can also go to the Just Giving website to offer your support to this worthwhile charity.
National Fibromyalgia Awareness week has been running this week from the 3rd – 9th September.
It’s a time when support groups have local acitivies to raise awareness of Fibromyalgia.
Look in your local rag to see if there are any coffee mornings, stalls in shopping centres, and craft fairs etc.
