Arthritis New Zealand wants to raise awareness that people of all ages are affected by the disease.
The organisation’s annual Orange Appeal kicks off today and features four people affected at different stages in their lives, from a threeyear-old child to a woman in her 70s.
Orange flowers and other items will be on sale until October 3 and the appeal hopes to raise more than $500,000.
People can donate online at www.arthritis. org.nz or give an instant $20 donation by phoning 0900-33320.
