Host a Legs Matter Natter

Legs Matter Natter graphic

Thinking of hosting a Legs Matter Natter?

Put the kettle on and get your friends, family or colleagues together that week over tea to talk all things legs and feet. A Legs Matter Natter can be as big or small as you make it. The important thing is that it’s a chance to get more people talking about leg and foot health. It could be as simple as downloading our awareness leaflet and checking your own or other’s legs and feet for the early warning signs. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even bake some leg and foot themed cakes or biscuits!

We’d love to know what you’re planning for your Legs Matter Natter and how we can help – send us an email or tweet us.
