Why we need to raise funds

Why we need to raise funds

The Colostomy Association is an independent charity and is financed solely from donations and fund-raising events. Your financial help has never been more important - with a continuing income and planned agenda, we can budget for and carry out the important work of the Association. However much is raised by you for the Colostomy Association, you can be rest assured that our end goal of providing help and support for Ostomates everywhere will continue to grow and evolve - with your help we can really make a difference.

We'd love you to fundraise for the Colostomy Association?

All funds raised go directly to help run the Colostomy Association and allow us to continue to provide support and help to thousands of ostomates across the UK. 

Whether you are thinking of having a cake sale, quiz night or doing something more active like a marathon or bike ride, we are here to help and support you.  We can't wait to hear from you so get in touch today.
