An Autumn Update from Team Guts UK

15th October 2020

Although Covid-19 put a halt to all of our fundraising events, prevented Colin the Inflatable Colon (left) from leaving his box and stopped us from hitting the road – we remain thankful.

2020 has been an uncertain year for everyone. Unsurprisingly, our fundraising income has taken a real hit and we have felt the devastating effects of a global pandemic, as so many have.

At Guts UK, we have been answering more calls, writing more letters and responding to more emails than ever before. Digestive diseases didn’t stop for Covid-19 and at a time when our community needed our help more than ever, we are proud to still be here for them.

It is your support that has kept us on track through these turbulent months.

Our community stepped up and offered phenomenal support, innovative virtual fundraising and heart-warming words of encouragement.

The reality still stands. Our guts have been underfunded, understaffed and undervalued for decades. We simply can’t afford to slow down research into digestive diseases. Not for Covid-19. Not now, not ever.

Let’s get to grips with guts and save lives.

How can I help?
