Shades Day is the Family Holiday Association’s national awareness and fundraising day where we ask the public to wear a pair of shades for charity, come rain or shine. It started in 2016 as a way of spreading awareness about the work that we do, but we would love to grow it for 2017.

It started in 2016 as a way of spreading awareness about the work that we do, but we would love to grow it for 2017.

It is the closest Friday to the UN’s International Day of the Family, and the day we recognize that thousands of struggling UK families never enjoy even the simplest break away from home.

It is a fun and simple day to get involved with. We ask people to wear a pair of shades and share them on twitter using the #ShadesDay and text donate ‘SHAD35 £3’ to donate £3. We have created a fundraising pack including photo props, activities, poster & bake sale ideas to help everyone get into the spirit of shades day.
