'Get Involved' in 2016

13th May 2016

Do you feel, like us, that 2016 is flying past all too quickly? 

If you pledged at the beginning of 2016 that this was going to be the year you would 'Get Involved' for Alopecia UK, read on for plenty of ideas as to how you can help.....or how we can help you!

1. Come to one of our support groups. There is some fantastic support available from our volunteer-led support groups. You can find full details of all our local support groups here.

2. Buy a ticket to our 'Big Weekend' in Glasgow this September (2nd-4th). Whether you come along for all the activities or just one of the days, there is something for everyone! Full details here.

3. Do a spot of fundraising for Alopecia UK. A couple of really simple ideas are an office or school dress down day. Ask your colleagues or classmates to pay 1 to go uniform-free. Easy peasy! Lots of other fundraising ideas here

4. Set up a regular or one-off donation for Alopecia UK. It couldn't be simpler to do this. We now have an online donation form allowing you to set up a regular payment or one-off donation to Alopecia UK. To donate click here

5. Do something EXTREME for Alopecia UK. Join our Tough Mudder challenge on International Alopecia Day (Saturday 6th August) in the Lake District. Full details of how to sign up to the Alopecia UK team here

6. Treat yourself to something from Alopecia UK's eBay store. Perhaps one of our new stylish and comfortable exclusive Alopecia UK design Buffs, or a car sticker, t-shirt or charity wristband. All proceeds to the charity. To view our full range of products, visit our eBay store here

7. If you are a supplier or business offering wigs, headwear, SPMU or other alopecia related products and services, please consider joining our 'Suppliers Directory'. Full details here

9. Apply for an Alopecia UK Collection Tin to display in your own or a local business. Limited number of collection tins available. Please only apply if you have a business counter top already lined up. Apply here
