I am really proud to be a volunteer for the South Yorkshire group of Crohns and Colitis UK.
We are a small team who all have either Crohns or ulcerative colitis and we raise awareness, raise money and offer support to local people with IBD in our area.
A few weeks ago we had a race night in Hillsborough to raise money and have a great time. We were over the moon to raise over £1000!!
We were thrilled to get into the Sheffield Star too.
We put on coffee mornings, attend events and put on our own and everyone is welcome.
Our next event is this Saturday at the medical education centre at Northern General hospital in Sheffield from 1-4pm. I will be doing a talk about the emotional and mental health aspects of IBD and there will also be talks by my wonderful surgeon Mr Brown and an IBD nurse.
Everyone is welcome, please do share the event and come along if you can.
