Get involved this Awareness Week

Help shine a light on coeliac disease

When we all shine together, we can make a difference for the people who need us: the 1 in 100 people with coeliac disease and their families and friends too. So join in with the #ShineALightOnCoeliac challenge and help us spread the word. Using the theme of 100, choose how you want to shine a light and if you can, raise some funds along the way. Make your challenge as easy or as difficult as you like!

Why not get physical and do 100 press ups every day during Awareness Week? Or challenge yourself to swimming 100 lengths? You could even spend 100 seconds per day hula hooping! Whatever you choose, you can make a difference.

Or get busy in the kitchen: by baking 100 GF biscuits or decorating 100 dazzling GF cupcakes. You could even get the whole family together for a 100 question quiz if you like! Whatever you do, just make it bright.
