They are a fantastic charity who help 1000’s of people across the UK. [/p][lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 10px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-family: 'PT Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: baseline; color: #222222;"[gt][/p][lt]h2 style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 10px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-family: 'Yanone Kaffeesatz', sans-serif; font-size: 34px; font-weight: normal; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: baseline;"[gt][lt]strong style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit; font-style: inherit; font-variant: inherit; line-height: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;"[gt][span=margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit; font-style: inherit; font-variant: inherit; font-weight: inherit; line-height: inherit; vertical-align: baseline; color: #339966;]Crohns & Colitis Uk [/span][/b][lt]/h2[gt] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 10px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-family: 'PT Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: baseline; color: #222222;"[gt]The charity has been providing information and support, funding research and fighting for change by bringing together people of all ages who have been diagnosed with IBD, their families and friends, and the professionals involved in their care.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 10px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-family: 'PT Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: baseline; color: #222222;"[gt]For myself personally the Charity have always supported me, in my deepest darkest days of flare ups and not knowing what to do they had a fantastic support line, I was able to call for advise and just someone to talk to. They were great for my family as well to be able to ask questions surrounding my condition. The charity support people of all ages and fund vital research into IBD and together we need to keep raising money for them to help others like me. [/p][p][/p][p]Please visit my website - www.blakebeckford.co.uk [/p][p]Twitter: @Blake_Beckford[/p]
