ME Awareness Week: let’s celebrate as a community but keep it smart – and apart!

January 17, 2021

ME Awareness Week is on its way from the 10th to the 16th of May. We peeps at the ME Association are getting ready for it with the latest version of our annual #GoBlue4ME campaign.

This year we’re encouraging everyone taking part to keep our celebration of Florence Nightingale’s birthday smart – and apart. There’s lots you can do to keep the party safe without occupying the same air space.

The easiest way for those who can’t get out of the house is to put up photos of yourselves and make personal statements on your social media and Facebook. Get the hashtag #GoBlue4ME trending.

Dream up something you can do in the comfort of your own home, with members of your household.  We expect lots of blue hairstyles, blue faces, blue cakes, blue nails, blue buildings… through the week. Then there’s all sorts of party games that can be played.

If you can turn it into a fundraiser for the ME Association, then set up your own JustGiving page and join our team here:

Anna Redshaw

The finale will come on Sunday, 16th May, with the stunning annual Blue Sunday Tea Party. We’re delighted to welcome Anna Redshaw back as our hostess with the mostest for the day. As she says, we need and deserve to get together as a community:

You’ll find our supplies list of leaflets, posters, balloons and everything else you might need to support your efforts on our website too.

Or feel free to get in touch with Tony Britton, our fundraising and PR manager, for a chat. He's on 07946 760 811 or email – and we’ll work up some ideas together.

Let’s make this the biggest and best ME Awareness Week yet!
