Crohn’s Disease & Ulcerative Colitis affects 1 in 200 people living in Scotland. We are a friendly & welcoming group who wish to help, inform & support people & their families & carers living with the condition. The Clyde Group have responsibility to support people from throughout the West of Scotland.
The Clyde Group of Crohn’s and Colitis UK has a large catchment area of members covering Greater Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Dunbartonshire, Inverclyde, Lanarkshire, Stirlingshire, Argyle & Bute up to Oban and Islands off the West Coast of Scotland & down to Ayrshire. We currently have over 700 members in our group but anyone with Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis is welcome to join or their family members or anyone with an interest in the conditions. The condition is more prevalent in Scotland & affects 1 in 200 people in Scotland. As we have such a large catchment area covering the centre and West of Scotland we hold our meetings in a central location in the centre of Glasgow as this has good transport links.
Recent interest in the condition has been increased as the TOWIE (The Only Way is Essex) celebrity Sam Faiers was recently diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease this year & Scotland the Football Captain Darren Fletcher announced he had been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis & has also recently set up his own charity United for Colitis which raised over £100,000 for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.
Other celebrities with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease include Sir Steve Redgrave the famed rower and 5 times Olympic Gold Medallist, the magician Dynamo, Ali Carter, Professional Snooker Star and Ken Stott the Scottish Actor renowned for his role as Rebus.
Crohn’s and Colitis UK Celebrity Ambassadors include Carrie Grant (Celebrity Vocal Coach & One Show Presenter), Jeff Hordley (Cane Dingle in Emmerdale), pop stars Anastasia and Rick Parfitt Junior. The focus of the charity is encouraging wellbeing and living positively with these health conditions to improve understanding and inspire others.
Take very good care of yourself & KEEP WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!
