After the consumer hype of Black Friday, local charity Cure Crohn’s Colitis (C3) is appealing to businesses and individuals to take part in the UK’s first Giving Tuesday today in the run-up to the season of goodwill and help raise cash for sufferers.
The charity is being supported in its efforts to find a cure by TV magician Dynamo, pictured here with the charity’s young ambassador Reece Newlands.
The campaign, part of a global day of charitable giving and support, encourages people to do at least one thing for a good cause.
In the true spirit of Christmas, C3 want people to donate to the charity as a special gift in the run-up to the festive season.
The charity gives 100 per cent of its funds towards medical research. Scotland has one of the highest incidences of the disease in the world, with one child a week being diagnosed at Yorkhill Hospital.
You can give a one-off donation or set up a regular donation on the charity’s website site at http://www.curecrohnscolitis.org/donate/caf-donation/
