Duvet Days

Our brand-new campaign is the cosiest and easiest way to raise money for Duchenne UK. We all deserve a Duvet Day! So snuggle down, it’s time to #DuNothingForDuchenne

What is a Duvet Day

It’s a day spent snuggling under your duvet. You only need your PJs, your duvet and your favourite people. Or some nice people at the very least. Ask for a donation to join the fun and then all that’s left to do is… nothing.

Just sit back and enjoy your time together, catching up, watching films* or playing games, and relaxing. All the while you’ll be raising money for a great cause without lifting a finger.

How do I get involved

There are lots of ways to get involved; hosting Duvet Days from home, work, school, university, or from local cinemas. The fundraising events require nothing more than spending time under a duvet, which means anyone can join in.

This is a collective endeavour to help end Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). To achieve a goal as grand as ours, we need your support to raise funds that will help this generation of people living with DMD. That’s why we’re asking everyone to host their own Duvet Day.

Share your Duvet Days on social!

Follow Duchenne UK on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok, @DuchenneUK. We’d love to see what you’re getting up to on your Duvet Day! You might like to post a duvet selfie or a quick film to show you’re Duvet Day ready and nominate your friends to do the same!
