What’s On - Event Listings
This year we’re aiming to reach more people than ever before. There are lots of ways you can get involved and help us spread the word, as well as raise money for the Ménière’s Society.
If you're holding a BAW event this year, please send us details, so we can list your event here.
Monday 18 September
Event for all - Blue Monday
We’re encouraging everyone to wear blue on Monday 18 September; the launch day for BAW2017. We ask that participants attend work/school wearing blue clothes (with permission of course!) and that each participant kindly donates £1 to the Society. We’d love to see pictures containing a sea of blue to raise further awareness through social media and the press. If you know a business or school who may consider supporting this particular awareness event, please get in touch. Read more... Text: BALA17 £1 to 70070 to make your Blue Monday donation.
Event for all - Blue Monday Alternative!
Want to get involved with Balance Awareness Week but haven't got time to organise an event like Blue Monday?
Why not bake (or buy!) some cakes and decorate with blue icing instead. Take them into work and share with your colleagues. Give them one of our info cards at the same time to help raise awareness. If you have generous colleagues, why not pop one of our cardboard collection boxes next to the cakes for people to give a donation for the Society
Online event - Facebook Live Session
@livingwithabalancecondition will be doing a Facebook live session with ANDREW CLEMENTS. Vestibular Physiotherapist at the Leicester Balance Centre UHL and Trustee of the Ménière’s Society on Monday the 18th of September at 11.30am . We'll be talking about general balance conditions.

Tuesday 19 September
Patient Event - Kingsbridge Library - Information Stand (10am-2pm)
Event for all - Tell-It Tuesday
Spread the word about Balance Awareness Week 2017 and the work of the Ménière’s Society. We’re encouraging everyone to tell a friend, colleague, or even the person you always see at the bus stop! Share with them why you’re supporting BAW and ask them to pass it to someone else on to raise even more awareness. If you’re on social media tweet/post about it! Use the hashtags #BAW2017 #BalanceAwareness #MenieresSociety #DefeatDizziness
