“We’re getting to grips with guts!”

2nd 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.

“I’m so glad to be able to have raised something to help such a brilliant charity who have supported me through some difficult and scary times, more than once.”

Jodi came & conquered the virtual fundraising world, raising an incredible £325 by walking over 100 miles in August. Despite suffering a knee injury mid-way through her challenge, Jodi and her wife Rebecca completed the challenge through pure determination and passion!

“I plan on making this the first of many fundraisers for Guts UK, as I get to combine my love of running with a cause that is immensely personal to me.”

George ran 26.2km and raised an incredible £795! George knows all too well of the burden caused by digestive diseases as he suffers with chronic pancreatitis. George joins Guts UK in funding research that leads to earlier diagnosis, kinder treatments and ultimately, a cure.

“To help others save their Nath, I rowed a marathon to fundraise in his memory.”

Ed lost his friend Nath to bowel cancer earlier this year. He made the most of lockdown in honour of Nath, rowing
a 26-mile marathon in his garden. Ed raised a remarkable £7,725!

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.
