Raynaud's is a condition in which blood is prevented from reaching the extremities of the body on exposure to the cold or any slight change in temperature. A small number of people who have Raynaud's also develop scleroderma, a disease which affects the connective tissue.

As part of Raynaud’s Awareness month and to highlight the condition, Raynaud’s & Scleroderma Association are asking you to love your gloves! February is statistically the coldest month of the year and it is vital to wrap up warm and protect your extremities.

The RSA want you to help them raise awareness, get involved in some fun activities and raise vital funds for research into these conditions. Why not get your oven gloves on and host a bake sale or your goalie gloves and host a charity football match?
