Would you like to help run the Red Lion Group by joining the committee? We’re a friendly bunch of people and, naturally, have a common cause – to listen to, advise and help those of us who have ileoanal pouches. We also help organise events such as annual Information Days and raise money for gastro research projects.

The committee member we are looking for would look after the smooth running of the finances and make sure the books are balanced at the end of the year. As treasurer, you would also be involved in four teleconference calls and a face-to-face meeting every year.

If you’ve a few hours to spare and would like to help your fellow pouchees or else know someone who does please contact David Davies, the chairman, at or Peter White, the acting treasurer, at
