Jenny - Virtual Social Event

"You are really making a difference to people living with Crohn’s and Colitis"

Jenny has been a volunteer for Crohn's & Colitis UK since 2017 and volunteers in the South Manchester Network and in our Virtual Social Events.

Knowing how much of a difference our usual coffee shop meet-ups make, I was really keen to ensure our members continue to have a way of connecting with others living with Crohn’s and Colitis.


I enjoy listening to people open up and speak freely about their experience, and what they are going through, with others who really understand.

Virtual Social Event Volunteer

You are really making a difference to people living with Crohn’s and Colitis, in a time where the isolation and loneliness these conditions cause has been even more challenging. I’ve also enjoyed connecting with other
Network volunteers from across the UK.

Want to volunteer with us?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, develop new skills and make a difference to everyone affected by Crohn's and Colitis.
