What we do
As a charity our aim is to improve bowel cancer survival rates. Working towards this goal, we raise money to to support various projects:
We fund the Family Colorectal Cancer Clinic (FCCC). The clinic is based at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and offers advice and screening to people at a high risk of developing bowel cancer.
We fund equipment and facilities to help improve the care and treatment of bowel cancer patients at the RSCH.
We provide grants for research into new ways of detecting bowel cancer and better ways of treating the disease.
GUTS works to raise awareness of bowel cancer and the steps people can take to reduce their own risk of developing the disease.
We provide a unique service for the community but we need your help to both maintain this service and to spread awareness of this common cancer. As a registered charity, we rely solely on donations from you, our supporters, to continue our fight against bowel cancer. You can support GUTS in a number of ways – please visit the ‘Volunteering for GUTS’ pages to find out more about taking part in our community fundraising activities.

Who we are…
The Trustees of GUTS include surgeons, pathologists and patients who all give freely of their time to help organise fundraising events and oversee the projects that funds are used to support. The Charity has two paid employees: Nerissa Deeks manages all the day to day running of the charity and Joe Smith looks after trust fundraising and media. Both are part time posts.
