All this week Acorn Stairlifts has been supporting Arthritis Care Week 2017, culminating in a fundraising ‘dress down day’ and cake sale at our Yorkshire head offices today.
Running from May 8th to 14th, the campaign is organised by leading UK charity Arthritis Care. Using the ‘Wake up to Arthritis’ slogan, it aims to highlight the extent of the condition, which affects an estimated 10 million people in the UK alone.
This year’s campaign also revealed the hidden impact of arthritis on mental wellbeing, calling on government and health services to take positive steps to alleviate it. Anyone living with arthritis can find invaluable support, advice and information via Arthritis Care’s website, www.arthritiscare.org.uk
