We had a tremendous launch of our new charity back in September, hitting the headlines with support from the leading scientific researchers, MP’s and an army of patients who all back our mission to end bowel cancer and bowel disease.

You can see the article that appeared in the Daily Telegraph here.

Our launch video that conveys the harsh realities that people with bowel cancer and bowel disease have to deal with was viewed over 4,000 times.

Whilst bowel cancer claims over 16,000 lives each year and bowel disease affects over a million people throughout the UK we firmly believe that the answer to help save and improve lives lies in research.


By investing in world-class, innovative research we hope that one day we can eradicate these conditions.

We aim to both increase and strengthen the research base in the UK and to support international research collaborations. Importantly, we will both continue and expand our investment in training the next generation of researchers.

Through all these means, we will help people with bowel diseases to live longer and improve their quality of life.
