Fundraising is an important aspect of the work that we do here at the #GetYourBellyOut campaign but it’s beneficial to note that the way in which we raise funds is changing…
Previously we’ve sent donations and funds raised directly to the national charity Crohn’s and Colitis UK, which enables them to continue providing wonderful support to those who need it most. They do so by various different means such as producing informational booklets, operating support phone lines, lobbying parliament and most importantly of all funding research into understanding these life changing conditions.
Going forward, as #GetYourBellyOut is now listed as a Community Interest Company (a not-for-profit) we’ll soon be able to accept donations direct. This financial support will safeguard the future of our important campaign and allow us to continue to be the ‘go to’ pillar of the IBD community!
If you have a fundraising page open and are already raising funds for Crohn’s and Colitis UK, don’t despair as our team fundraising link will remain open for the foreseeable future!
Some of the fundraising activities that #GetYourBellyOut have undertaken in the past range from Boxing Day Icy Sea Dips, Awareness Walks, Annual Charity Evenings, Hair Chops, Raffles, Auctions, Crafts, Cake Sales and Colour Runs to name but a few.
If you would like to join us for some fun whilst encouraging the general public to donate to such a deserving cause please select an upcoming event from the list or alternatively please reach out to us via the Contact us section of the website if you would like to set us a challenge!
The team are currently hard at work planning some future fundraising activities, please check back soon.
If you would like to skip the physical activities but would still like to make a donation to Crohn’s and Colitis UK you may do so via the Donate tab. We greatly appreciate every single donation whether large or small. Thank you!
