“We’re getting to grips with guts, too!”

17th December 2020

We are so proud of everyone who continued the fight against digestive diseases (virtually!) through this turbulent year. It has been tough, but we are grateful to everyone of our fundraisers who stepped up to keep us on track in 2020.

“When I was in hospital alongside others with digestive diseases, I realised there needs to be so much more awareness created for these invisible illnesses. We must raise much needed funds for research!”

In 2021 Abi will be scaling the peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro! Abi is a beacon of positivity and determination, making it her mission to put invisible digestive diseases such as diverticular disease on the map and hoping to raise £1,000 for Guts UK.

“Big hair? Don’t care!”

James’ virtual fundraising has seen his hair double in size! James’ close friend lost his father to pancreatitis just four days after diagnosis last year, so James has dedicated a years’ worth of hair growth to Guts UK. He has already raised almost £500!

“I am fundraising for Guts UK to support others who suffer from hidden illnesses.”

Before the Covid–19 outbreak, Dave was set to take on 3 world renowned challenges (Ironman Triathlon, London Marathon and Ride London 100). Dave has chronic liver disease and colitis and understands first- hand the importance of getting to grips with guts. Despite the cancellation of these events, he raised over £1,000 and still hopes to complete the 250 mile- long challenge in 2021. Inspirational!

With new knowledge, we will end the pain and suffering for the millions affected by digestive diseases. Contact us about your fundraising idea today. Let’s get to grips with our guts and save lives.
