There are lots of ways you can get involved with the first ever Legs Matter Week. Here are THREE things you can start planning now.

Legs with text about Legs Matter Week 3-7 June 2019

01 – Host 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 each 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.

02 – Take the Legs Matter Pledge

We’ll be asking everyone to take The Legs Matter Pledge during the week. All you need to do is:

1. Check your legs and feet

2. Share the ONE thing you will do to look after your legs and feet

3. Nominate someone else to take the pledge

We’ll be kicking off the pledge in the weeks leading up to the June 3 but you can find some top tips for leg and foot health in our handy leaflet that you can download NOW or read on our very own website.

03 – Share your one big thing

We’ll be using the week to share the one thing people wish they had known about legs and feet. Let us know your one thing and we’ll share it far and wide during the week. You can start sharing with us now on Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #legsmatter or email us.

  1.  Know what to look out for with our Knees to toes tips which you can and share or download and send to your friends, relatives and colleagues
  2.  Request or download one of our free action packs and ask your local GP surgery, pharmacy, hospital, patient group or club to put in on your notice board. And while you’re at it, take a pic showing it taking pride of place and share it with us.
