World Lupus Day - May 10th
World Lupus Day focusses on the need for increased public awareness and understanding of lupus, increased research into the causes and to look for a cure for lupus, and improved diagnosis times and treatment of lupus within the medical profession.
In 2014, World Lupus Day will mark it's 10th year.
We have a brand new World Lupus Day poster this year to help raise awareness. All LUPUS UK members should have received a copy with their Spring edition of News & Views magazine. If you require more they can be requested from National Office or downloaded from below:
World Lupus Day Coffee Morning
This year, we want you to take part in a World Lupus Day coffee morning on Saturday May 10th. Let's try to make it the biggest coffee morning ever for people with lupus!
Get baking (or ask your friends to), pop on the kettle and invite people to join you and make a small donation to help raise funds and awareness.
Perhaps you can host a coffee morning at home, your local church or community centre, or maybe have a special coffee break at work?
For tips on hosting a successful coffee morning, take a look here.
You can download a special World Lupus Day Coffee Morning Poster to help promote your event above.
If you'd like to hold a a different type of event for World Lupus Day then please take a look at our Fundraising Guide for ideas.
We are working alongside Lupus Europe for World Lupus Day. They also have a range of posters and information which are available below;
