Fundraising for Crohn’s and Colitis UK

If you’d like to sponsor me on this walk, please visit my JustGiving page. (Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure!)

All the money I raise on this walk will go to a charity close to my heart, Crohn’s and Colitis UK  (CCUK), who are fighting to achieve a better quality of life now for the 300,000 people in the UK suffering physically and emotionally due to inflammatory bowel disease.

Many people don’t know that right now there are more than 300,000 people in the UK have Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis – someone is diagnosed every 30 minutes and 50% of people with Crohn’s need to have surgery. These conditions are difficult, hidden, and complex; they can prevent people leaving their home and cause anxiety and isolation, even from loved ones.

I’d be very grateful if you’d consider sponsoring me on my walk as it means CCUK will be able help those affected enjoy a far better quality of life by improving treatment, support and life-changing research. But they can’t do this without your help. Almost every penny they invest in research comes from membership, donations and fundraising by people like you.
