Classmates raise allergy awareness
Published 24/05/14



YOUNGSTERS at Rupert House School in Henley donned orange wigs to help a classmate raise awareness of allergies.

The day was the brainchild of six-year-old Lilian Graham, who is allergic to nuts, sesame, dairy and eggs, and wanted to raise money for the Anaphylaxis Campaign. Year 1 pupils took part in Orange Wig Day last week.

Lilian said: “I just wanted to do it and I set up a website and we bought the orange wigs. It’s been fun — my friends like wearing the orange wigs.”

Mum Clare, of Northfield End, Henley, added: “Rupert House School have been very supportive with Lilian’s allergies. I guess for us it became a way of life. But people are dying from this and I don’t think people understand the significance of allergies.”

Teacher Libby Burrows added: “It’s a really worthwhile cause — Lilian has taken charge of it and has already raised more than £600.”
