Who are Crohn’s and Colitis UK?
Founded as a patients’ association in 1979, Crohn’s and Colitis UK provide high quality information, practical help and personal care that enables people to manage their conditions. They work closely with the UK health sector to improve diagnosis, treatment and management of IBD. They also support life-changing research to increase the knowledge of the causes and the best treatments for Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
What’s #GetYourBellyOut’s connection to Crohn’s and Colitis UK?
#GetYourBellyOut founders are honured to be listed as community champion ambassadors for the national charity due to their commitment, passion and exceptional efforts
‘Community Champions do incredible work across the UK, they are campaigning to raise awareness in the media, striving to resolve stigma associated with bowel conditions, raising money that funds research, support lines and much more as well as volunteering to support their local community.’
Your money really does help to change lives!

To date the JustGiving team total stands at over £76,000 raised, how amazing is that?!
