Is it difficult to fundraise?

Getting involved in fundraising events and activities, no matter how small or large, can be a fantastic way to give back and raise funds for charity.

Larger events will take more time and effort to organise but smaller events can be easy to set up and run, so however big you’re thinking please get in contact with our Fundraising Team to talk about what you’d like to do.

I don’t have much spare time; will fundraising take up a lot of my time?

There are many ways you can fundraise without giving up a lot of your precious time and we are grateful for any time you are able to give.

Whether you’re willing to supply your local supermarket with our collection tins, offer your help at a preplanned event or even take on a challenge such as a half marathon, there are many ways you can get involved.

Contact our Fundraising Team to find out more about the ways you can give your time to fundraise.

How many hours do you require from volunteers?

It’s entirely up to you how many hours you can give. There are a range of roles requiring different amounts of time – from long term involvement in the Local Voluntary Support Groups to one off projects.

Can the Community pharmacy supply of gluten-free foods scheme be followed in rural and urban areas?

There is no reason why this scheme cannot be successful in either rural or urban areas. Using an online claim service would ensure efficiency and that GP dispensaries work to the same enhanced service contract as the pharmacies.

Where does the money I raise go?

The funds raised by our Members play a vital part in the service we offer people with coeliac disease.

  • We provide information and support to over 60,000 Members
  • We campaign to improve diagnosis, for improved follow up care and safe food.
  • We fund research into the disease, new treatments and potential cures.
  • We also work closely with healthcare professionals and build unique networks with food manufacturers, retailers and caterers.

Why are fundraisers so important to Coeliac UK?

We rely on the generosity of our Members and supporters to raise income as the Charity receives no government funding. Our fundraisers not only raise essential funds for the Charity, but they also raise much needed awareness about coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis and the gluten-free diet. 

I have registered for an event; can I raise money for Coeliac UK?

Yes! We are always delighted to hear from individuals who have secured a place in an event. Whether you are running 5km or swimming across Lake Windermere, we would like to hear from you. Download our sponsorship form for offline donations or create a fundraising page at JustGiving. JustGiving is an easy and effective way to collect your sponsorship money without having to worry about chasing your donors after the event. Don’t forget to get touch with Fundraising Team to let us know about your fundraising efforts.

Are there any incentives for pharmacists taking part in the Community pharmacy supply of gluten-free foods scheme?

Introducing a pharmacy led supply scheme allows better stock control of gluten-free foods for pharmacists as well as providing a more flexible service to improve the patient experience.

Pharmacists and GP dispensaries are paid a service charge at six monthly intervals for each patient who accesses the service. When the scheme in Northamptonshire was introduced it was run as an Enhanced Service with funding for this element of the contract coming from Primary Care Contracting budgets.

What mobile phones will the app work on?

This app will work on iPhone models 4 and above and Android smartphones that can download apps from the Google Play store.

Blackberry devices are included in the Google Playstore list however they are not compatible with Gluten free food checker.
