Mayor visits anaphylaxis charity for anniversary

The Mayor of Rushmoor visited the offices of Anaphylaxis Campaign on Monday 18th November to hear about the vital support they provide to people at risk from severe allergic reactions.


This event was part of celebrations to mark 25 years since the charity was founded. During the visit the Mayor, Cllr Sue Carter, spoke with CEO Lynne Regent, one of the trustees, Sue Clarke, and the different departments which deliver services.


This included the national helpline advisors, who give advice on everything from allergy care to food labelling, and the fundraising team who this year helped create the charity’s first Anaphylaxis Awareness Week in May.


Cllr Sue Carter said: “I was delighted to be invited to Anaphylaxis Campaign, which has spent the last 25 years supporting individuals and families at risk of anaphylaxis, the most severe allergic reaction.

“By raising awareness, campaigning for change and offering vital information, the charity is helping those at risk to manage their allergy successfully.”


Chief Executive Lynne Regent said: “We are honoured to have the Mayor of Rushmoor visit our offices to find out more about the vital support we provide to those at risk of anaphylaxis. We are a UK-wide charity but recognition within our local area in Farnborough is greatly appreciated and helps us to continue raising awareness and funds so that we can offer more support to those affected.”
