Shades Day 2018

Shades Day #ShadesDay

Help us to spread a little sunshine by wearing your sunglasses for #ShadesDay on Friday 18th May!

Shades Day is our national fundraising and awareness day when we encourage everyone to wear a pair of shades come rain or shine.

It is the closest Friday to the UN’s International Day of the Family, and the day we recognise that thousands of struggling UK families never enjoy even the simplest break away from home.

Get your colleagues together and encourage everyone to dig out a pair of shades. Simply text ‘SHAD35 £3’ to 70070 to donate £3, or nominate someone to collect the money in the office. And don’t forget to share your snaps with us on social media using the hashtag #ShadesDay.

Shades Day Stars

If you fancy being the one to round up your team and ensure they wear their shades on #ShadesDay, become a  Shades Day Star! We’ll help you all the way by sending countdown emails and a fundraising pack jammed full of games, stickers, posters and a jumbo pair of shades to help build the Shades Day buzz!
