Sock It Campaign 

#Sockit

 

 

After the sucess last year we are once again organising a Thunderclap to ensure as many people as possible hear and learn about lymphoedema. A Thunderclap enables a single message to be sent to multiple social media accounts at the same time including FaceBook, Twitter or Tumblr as long as you have signed up in advance. It is for one occasion only but it goes much further.

The message will be sent out @ 12 Noon Saturday 10th March
