You can show your support by wearing a Unity Band available from a number of stores including high-street jewellers F Hinds. With a suggested donation of £2, the adjustable bands are available in pink, blue or navy. More bands mean more research and more cures.
In addition, F Hinds is holding various fund-raising events across its 116 stores from this Friday until Sunday including free jewellery cleaning, face painting, raffles and a sponsored bike ride - so drop in to your local branch to get involved.
Keith, manager from F.Hinds Sittingbourne, is holding a sponsored bike ride in The Forum shopping centre. Keith says, “This is something that is close to all of our hearts. We’ve had family and friends who have been affected by this terrible illness and the way it can destroy lives. We felt it would be an honour to raise funds for such a remarkable charity."
If you can't get to a store, you can buy your band online.
