In memoriam, in celebration: Alice Kington

5th December 2022

It is with huge sadness that we announce the death of Alice Kington, Guts UK’s Finance Manager on November 8th 2022.

Alice worked for many years at the British Society of Gastroenterology before becoming the charity’s full time Finance and Research Manager in April 2016. She loved her work and was a driven, committed individual who rejoiced in the growth of the Guts UK community. Alice was instrumental in the development of the charity. As Finance Manager she was constantly aware of the significance of each and every donation, putting every penny to our purpose.Alice contributed so much more than this astute financial management to the whole team with her joyous love of politics, music and football. Such fun. We miss her every day. We send heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

We will continue Alice’s work and strive to achieve the standards she set us all, for she leaves a huge legacy at Guts UK. This legacy lives on as we learn to celebrate Alice’s life and give eternal thanks that we knew her, loved her and had the chance to work alongside her. What a privilege.
