Many in our community have already taken up the challenge to raise £50 for our 50th year by throwing a party to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you to those who have already joined in, like Beryl and Geoff who had a gluten free tea dance. Beryl supplied homemade gluten free treats and Geoff made a wonderful information board on the history of the charity and the developments that have been made over the last 50 years.
Dietitan, Kirsty Dobson, held a trolley dash at her hospital with her student dietitians who did a fantastic job raising awareness amongst medical and nursing staff and patients. They also raised £86.50 thanks to Trust staff members who enthusiastically bought from their gluten free bake sale.
Young Champion Hannah sold fairy cakes to her neighbours to celebrate 50 years of Coeliac UK. Her teachers also got involved during Awareness Week and held activities with Hannah’s class to inform them about coeliac disease.
Thanks to our sponsors M&S for supporting our 50th Anniversary parties.
