Who are we, and how can we help?dots7

Action Against Allergy (AAA) is a registered national charity founded in 1978 by Mrs Amelia Nathan Hill who, since childhood, had suffered allergic reactions to many different foods and chemicals. She was chronically ill with migraine, stomach upsets, painful limbs and joints and other symptoms so severe that she was bedridden for long periods. Her doctor thought she was being poisoned!

After many years and help from methods devised by the late Dr Richard Mackarness using elimination diets,  Amelia was able to control her allergies and enjoy a normal life. She wrote her own story of her fight for health, Against the Unsuspected Enemy, which inspired thousands to write to her to share their own allergy problems and express their desperate need for help. Amelia founded AAA to give that help – and it has done so ever since.

We offer help, support and advice through our forums, articles, newsletters and events.  The best way to start fighting your own allergic condition is join us and benefit from over 35 years experience.

It won’t cost you ANYTHING!

Making ends meet is difficult for so many of us these days. And raising funds to keep going is the hardest task of all for charities like ours right now.

For over 40 years our information and advisory service has been a lifeline for many suffering from all kinds of allergic illness. We have a range of services to help.  Our workshops for adults and parents of food allergic children and our support of innovative paediatric clinical projects have contributed to improving the quality of life for many. All available funds have been put to practical use.

Now we are ourselves sorely in need of help to carry on our work.

You may not be able to put your hands in your pocket to help us – but there are other effective ways  which won’t cost you a penny.

Are you one of the millions who shop online?

It may be an occasional purchase, or perhaps your regular grocery order. Whatever it is, retailers are so keen for your custom there are schemes in place whereby they will contribute to your favourite charity a percentage of your order value. Just pennies each time, perhaps, but yours and others together can make a gift of significance.

It’s so easy to do. Just go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk and register, choosing Action Against Allergy as the charity to receive all retailer contributions. This site has over 3,700 retailers signed up. So it’s likely you will find the one you want whether it’s for groceries, travel, household items and more. Simply click on it and you will be taken to their familiar home page where you can shop as you usually do.

Another option is AmazonSmile.co.uk,  a favourite source for book orders and leisure items as well as countless others, which donates 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of all eligible purchases. Here, too, the gift goes directly to the charity of your choice. Please make it Action Against Allergy.
