Lose The Latex!


Whilst new food allergy legislation is slowly improving the situation for allergy sufferers there is currently nothing in place for those who suffer from latex allergies.  I have therefore started to write to restaurants to request a change from latex gloves to an alternative type explaining the impact latex can have on not only the customer but also to their employees.  I will then compile a list of restaurants who do not use latex gloves and add this to our website. Here is the letter, please feel free to share this page on social media and if you know of any restaurants that use latex gloves please let us know and we will happily make contact and see if they will assist our campaign:

About us

Izzy and Ollie is a new Children's Safety Education project which was inspired when 2 and a half year old Isabelle called an ambulance for her Mum when she experienced a life threatening allergic reaction. The incident made Joanne consider how wonderful it would be if all young children could be educated about emergency situations. To simply learn their full name, age and address as early as possible (as her 1st book illustrates) could be highly beneficial not only to themselves, but it could also contribute to help save other people’s life. The books follow characters Izzy and Ollie who find themselves entangled in various situations. They encompass Child Safety issues together with simple courses of action that children could learn and replicate should they ever find themselves in the same situation.
