After losing their lead designer Amy Mattingly to bowel cancer in 2018, the Bath-based eCommerce agency, blubolt, have a strong and ongoing commitment to support Bowel Cancer UK.

“We’re delighted with the outcome of the rebrand, and couldn’t be more proud of the way in which it represents our close ties to Bowel Cancer UK. Last year we raised £9,000 for the charity and we hope to exceed this in 2019. We have so much respect and gratitude for what the charity have done and continue to do, and we’re very proud to be supporting them and to have made this support such an integral part of our new company identity.”

This is the age group of many of the patients who visit the nine NHS Treatment Centres we run on behalf of the NHS. As well as an initial donation of £10,000, we hope the centres will provide an excellent way for the charity to promote bowel health. We also know that the teams at these centres are keen to support the charity through their own fundraising initiatives.”
