2018 saw Mosi-guard Natural support the ‘Wake up to Lyme’ campaign, for the second year running.
The awareness drive was spearheaded by Lyme Disease UK (LDUK) and took place during Lyme disease awareness month in May. Its goal was to help reduce incidents of new Lyme disease cases by encouraging tick bite awareness.
More than 500 awareness packs were dispatched originally, with orders for hundreds more flying in soon after the campaign launched. The packs included top tips on everything from being tick aware and tick hot spots, to effective tick bite prevention and safe tick removal.
The campaign made waves across the UK with numerous media outlets covering the story. Packs were distributed widely throughout communities from NHS clinics, vets, supermarkets, offices, restaurants and coffee shops, to schools, parks, post offices, libraries, pharmacies and offices.
LDUK received a fantastic response from members of the public who had experienced a tick bite themselves and wanted to learn more and from people with family members and friends with suspected Lyme disease.
School children across the UK also got involved with LDUK’s downloadable school awareness packs. In classrooms up and down the country, pupils gave entertaining presentations to classmates, culminating in one of the campaign highlights, a poster competition. Children created eye catching designs to enter, at the same time learning about ticks and Lyme disease in a really engaging way.
More positive feedback from the campaign.
We were honoured to once again be involved in this great initiative which has made a real impact in raising awareness. If you would like to know more about how you can support LDUK, a not-for-profit organisation, click here.
