BOSA are really enjoying getting into the Halloween spirit by dressing up and showing of our baking skills in support of our Charity of the Quarter – Asthma UK.
Asthma is a common issue, especially amongst young people. Many of you have probably had some form of asthma growing up but for some people, asthma can be fatal.
Every 10 seconds, someone in the UK has a potentially fatal asthma attack and as a result the lives of three families are devastated by the death of a loved one from asthma. Many of these deaths are preventable with the right basic care but there are some cases where the asthma is so severe that current treatments don’t work. Asthma UK work to stop attacks and ultimately cure asthma and by funding world leading research and scientists, campaigning for change and supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life threatening asthma attack.
We feel this is a really wonderful cause and we look forward to holding more events throughout the quarter to help this wonderful charity.
