Share a #Scarfie, save a life

Your #scarfie can help people with asthma

This winter you can help stop asthma attacks simply by sharing a #Scarfie (a selfie with a scarf).

Every 10 seconds someone is having a potentially life-threatening asthma attack in the UK, and as many as three quarters of people with asthma tell us cold air triggers their symptoms.

Wrapping a scarf loosely over your nose and mouth to warm up the air before you breathe it in is such a simple tip, and sharing it could save the life of someone with asthma.

If you haven’t already, share your #Scarfie with us today:
