Gluteywear raising funds for BDRF
Online sportswear brand Gluteywear are supporting BDRF through its website www.gluteywear.com
The company has dedicated an area of the site from which 50% of profits will be donated to Bowel Disease Research Foundation.
Katie Truscott-Howell, Operations Manager at Gluteywear has Crohn’s disease and was motivated to support BDRF after learning more about the work the charity undertakes in helping to combat bowel disease.
“Every patient who suffers with a condition like Crohn’s knows that it’s physically and mentally challenging in everyday life.
Waking up each day not knowing how you’re going to feel is difficult; plan making goes out of the window! Chronic fatigue, loss of appetite and agonising pain is a day to day feeling; so, having people around you to support and accept you is why I chose BDRF to partner with as a charity.
Working with a charity close to my heart gives a feeling of proudness, and having the support from Gluteywear behind me, making all this happen – I’m forever grateful. Bowel disease is a very important, under-recognised and under-funded area of medicine, so we at Gluteywear are selling our amazing gym wear on the website, under the BDRF tab and 50% of profits will be donated to this incredible charity. 1 in 20 people will develop bowel cancer – it’s the fourth most common cancer in the UK and the second most common form of cancer death. So, let’s start building this community and give a helping hand to the people who need it most”
Peter Rowbottom, Chief Executive of BDRF is delighted that the company has chosen to support the charity –
“I’m really pleased with this offer of support from Gluteywear – Katie, like many people who have Crohn’s, knows just how difficult this illness can be. Through this campaign, she hopes to show others that they are not alone in what can sometimes be a painful journey. Big thanks to all at GluteyWear for supporting research into bowel disease!”
