Introducing two new members of Team Guts UK

14th January 2020

This charity was set up to change something – to increase the levels of research into diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas so no one suffers in silence or alone.

Since 1971 we have funded almost 300 projects and invested over £15 million pounds into medical research that leads to better diagnoses and treatments for the millions of people who, like us, don’t have the luxury of taking our guts for granted. Our vision is of a world where digestive disorders are better understood, better treated and everyone who lives with one gets the support they need – and we couldn’t continue working towards this without a small but dedicated team.

We’d love to introduce you to two new members of our team, Charlie & Julie.

Charlie Dutton-Brearley – Community & Events Fundraiser

Charlie has been tasked with the exciting job of getting to know each & every one of our incredible supporters. Recently he has been spreading the word about our two upcoming 2020 events; The Vitality Big Half Marathon and Ride London 100.

“I’m delighted to be a member of Team Guts UK. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to try and make my impact into conditions of the gut, liver and pancreas by introducing the public to the innovative research that Guts UK funds, and encouraging them to support this by fundraising for us”. 

Julie Thompson – Information Manager & Specialist Gastroenterology Dietitian

Julie has taken on a brand new role at Guts UK and will be your first point of contact for any enquiries about conditions or symptoms that you may have. Having worked as a Specialist Gastroenterology Dietitian, Julie has a wealth of knowledge that the rest of the team combined could only dream of!

“I cannot tell you how excited I am to be working for such a progressive and needed charity. I have had many years of working as a Gastroenterology Specialist Dietitian and through that time I have had good experience of the workings of the NHS and what services can be provided for people with digestive problems”.
