FSeeking Shades Day Starsriday 19th May is Shades Day, the Family Holiday Association’s national fundraising and awareness day when everyone is encouraged to wear sunglasses for charity whatever the weather. Launched with charity Ambassadors from the travel and tourism industry in 2016, the charity is inviting you to become a Shades Day Star and get your office involved in the 2017 event.

As a Shades Day Star you can support the charity and encourage your office to wear and share photos in their sunglasses on social media, as well as having fun on the day and holding shades-related fundraising activities and games. All Shades Day Stars will receive a fundraising pack in advance to help make the most of the day.

Getting involved in Shades Day helps raise funds to enable the charity to provide children and their families, struggling with some of the toughest challenges life can bring, a short break or day trip to the British seaside. A simple break from their daily struggles can be life-changing for these families. For many, the joy of simply seeing each other smile can lift them out of every day cares and worries and enrich their lives forever.
