Fundraising in 2022

After starting 2021 in lockdown, it was wonderful to see so many events returning and our ED community back at it, fundraising across the country for Ectodermal Dysplasia.

Looking ahead to 2022….

In February, we all come together across the world to recognise ED for Ectodermal Dysplasia Awareness Month. There are many ways you can get involved such as sharing your story, donating, fundraising or volunteering.

Queen

Please head over to the ED Awareness Month page to see what’s going on this year.

The Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II will be celebrated in 2022 in the Commonwealth, to mark the 70th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II on 6th February 1952. With an extended bank holiday weekend at the beginning of June, it is inevitable that street parties are going to be the way forward when celebrating this milestone. The Platinum Jubilee celebrations will begin on Thursday, 2nd June, and will continue over the weekend until 5th June 2022 – Get involved with the Platinum Jubilee.

Maybe you have thought of planning something for this occasion and fundraise for ED at the same time? Cake sales, party entry, raffles? Here are some great activities to celebrate with the children – 25 activities for celebrating the Queen’s platinum jubilee with kids.
