One in 11 children in the UK has asthma, which is around 3 in every classroom. Asthma’s common, but it can also be serious: sadly, every 10 seconds someone in the UK has an asthma attack. This is why Asthma UK’s work is so important.
How you can help
Whether it’s at school, university, or another type of youth club like Brownies you can fundraise to help us! The money you raise goes directly towards helping people with asthma – so we can fund world-class research, campaign to improve the quality of care received by people with asthma and provide expert information and advice through our website and Helpline.
Whatever your Guiding group has planned, we would love for you to get involved! If working towards your next badge and raising vital funds for people with asthma sounds up your street, check out our guiding page for all the information you could need and to find out more!
