Fundraising at Home Keeping our community together
As we get used to our new routines and are spending more time at home, we have come up with a few ideas on how to keep you entertained and carry on fundraising! Alternatively, get inspired and come up with your own at home fundraiser.
Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget to tell friends and family what you are doing and keep us posted!
Declutter and Donate
As we are all stuck at home this 'Giving Tuesday', now is the perfect time to have a clear out and donate your unwanted materials to help support Coeliac UK!
There are many ways you can turn your unwanted items into vital funds:

- Recycle 4 Charity will take your inkjet cartridges
- Stamps (any used ones will do) can be sent to Coeliac UK, PO Box 16992, Sutton Coldfield B73 9YA
- For any unwanted jewellery, or other items like watches, foreign bank notes and many other things, simply visit Recycling for good causes and register - make sure you include Coeliac UK as the charity of your choice!
