Go Purple on Purple Friday!

Purple Friday (1 December) will see the nation Going Purple for Crohn’s and Colitis UK. We are asking our supporters to wear purple – head to toe if you are dare – as part of Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Week to help make Crohn's and Colitis visible!

Go Purple at work, school, university or in the gym – wherever you can! Invite your colleagues, your friends or family to be involved - get them to Go Purple for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

Life changing and becoming more common, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis can have a devastating effect on people’s education, work, social and family life. Public awareness and understanding of these chronic conditions is just not high enough – but with your help we can pull these “invisible” illnesses out of the shadows.

Let's go purple together - download your resources below!

If you have any questions about Go Purple day please contact our friendly Supporter Care team on 01727 734485 or email fundraising@crohnsandcolitis.org.uk.
