Bucket collection in aid of Crohn's and Colitis UK

City welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Ashton Gate tomorrow in the Sky Bet Championship and the fixture will raise money for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

At least 300,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), a chronic condition that can cause ulceration and inflammation in the colon (Ulcerative Colitis) or any part of the digestive system (Crohn’s Disease).

Crohn’s and Colitis UK is a national charity leading the battle against IBD. They're fighting to achieve a better quality of life for those suffering physically and emotionally from IBD. Ultimately, they want to find a cure.

Volunteers will be based throughout the concourse ahead of kick-off so if you are able to - no matter how big or small - please give a donation to help fund this invaluable charity.

All money raised from the the collection will assist in providing patient support at Southmead Hospital and the Bristol Royal Infirmary and fund life-changing research into IBD.
