February is Raynaud’s Awareness Month in which we aim to highlight Raynaud’s and the work of the RSA by asking you to “LOVEyourGLOVES!”. February is statistically the coldest month of the year and it is vital to wrap up warm and protect your extremities. We want you to help us raise awareness, get involved in some fun activities and raise vital funds for research into these conditions. Why not get your oven gloves on a host a bake sale or your goalie gloves and host a charity football match? To inspire you, take a look at our leaflet here.

If you could tweet #loveyourgloves, put up a poster which you can download here, organise a fundraising event or help in any way to highlight this campaign please contact the RSA on 01270 872776 or [email protected]. Raynaud’s hints and tips will be shared throughout February so make sure you follow us to read these!
