Crohn's & Colitis UK was August's Charity of the Month
OGL staff are holding monthly dress down days through 2019 to raise money for staff-nominated charities.
August's dress down day was held in support of Crohn's & Colitis UK, and saw us raise a total of £273.60 for the amazing work that they do.
The charity was suggested by our Commercial Lead, Stacey Timmins.
Stacey said: “Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, affecting more than 300,000 people in the UK. They are chronic conditions with no known cause or cure, which can have a massive impact on a person’s mental and physical health and are known to cause stigma and isolation.
“Crohn’s and Colitis UK provide confidential all-round support services, such as emotional support, guides and assistance to help live with the diseases, practical assistance such as help with applying for disability benefits and much more.
“I know this contribution will really help them to continue their great work improving the lives of people with these conditions across the UK, just as they have with my Dad.”
