Red Cake Day

During Haemophilia Awareness Week

Haemophilia Awareness Week and Red Cake Day were held this year from 9 to 15 October 2016. Haemophilia Foundation Australia and Haemophilia Foundations around the country worked together to raise awareness about inherited bleeding disorders. 

There was great interest in the week and we had many supporters to help us fundraise and raise awareness over the week.   The Bendigo Bank branches across Australia joined in partnership to raise awareness and funds, and schools, hospitals, libraries, families and local communities around the country received promotional materials to help them run their own Red Cake Days and Haemophilia Awareness Week activities. They held different types of events, but they all worked together with us to raise awareness about bleeding disorders or host a Red Cake Day. We are grateful for the support and uptake of this exciting event which we hope is becoming a regular feature on everyone’s calendar. 


A newsletter highlighting all the events held during Haemophilia Awareness Week will be distributed to participants soon and will be available on the HFA web site.  If you wish to receive a copy please email Natashia at  

Thank you to everyone who participated in Haemophilia Awareness Week and Red Cake Day activities!
