May 2021 Media round up

Since the last media update there has been over 4,000 pieces of coverage published across national, trade and regional press across hard copy publications and online websites covering a variety of topics. This includes of course our #ShineALightOnCoeliac campaign for Awareness Week, which led to a wide variety of press coverage and mentions which we were thrilled to see.

A few key ones to mention include: The Daily Mirror naming Coeliac UK as their charity of the week; a shout out on BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show that it was Coeliac UK Awareness Week; five articles about awareness week, gluten free products and cookbooks in The Independent. There has also been numerous articles in regional press about some of our fabulous fundraisers as well as radio interviews throughout the week including on BBC Radio Wales, UCB1, BBC Radio Tees and an interview with our CEO Hilary Croft which was broadcast to over 50 independent radio stations.

There is too much to include details of all the coverage that has been featured, but an example includes:

Western Daily Press (the same article was featured on over 25 news websites across the UK)
