Gluten-free dinner party

Gluten-Free dinner party pack

Host a gluten-free dinner party to raise funds and awareness for Coeliac UK. With your help we’re hoping to raise £10,000 to support the vital work of Coeliac UK, which includes our campaign to improve diagnosis rates across the UK. By hosting a dinner party you will not only raise vital funds for our work, but will also be raising awareness of coeliac disease and the importance of medical diagnosis.

Fundraising collections

Coelaic UK Fundraising collection

Speak to your local supermarket or businesses and see if they will let you hold a collection on their premise (please be aware we do not support house to house collections). We can send you the buckets and other materials, we just need you and your friends to ask others to donate to a fantastic cause. If you would like to hold a collection, please contact us for materials and advice.



Do you have an idea for a fundraising event?

It could be a sponsored head shave, a sponsored beard grow or giving up something for a month. Whatever it is, please let us know and we can send you our fundraising pack to help turn your idea into funds to help people affected by coeliac disease.
