Go Purple on Purple Friday!

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.
