Gluten Free Christmas Hamper giveaway to raise awareness to coeliac disease

The Gluten Free Centre, the UK’s fastest growing online resource and community hub dedicated to those with coeliac disease and living gluten free, is offering the gift of a Christmas hamper to one of its members.

Diana Murphy, (38) from Wiltshire, has coeliac disease and is one of the founders of the centre said: “Christmas festivities focus heavily on food and meeting with families and friends and sharing meals together. One of the reasons for offering this hamper is to help raise awareness to coeliac disease and gluten intolerance as hundreds of thousands of families are affected. A huge range of gluten free products are available today to cater for the needs of people with intolerances including stuffing mixes, suet, mince pies and Christmas pudding. It is really important that none of your family members or friends feel excluded or uncomfortable during the festive season.”

Following the official site launch in mid October this year, The Gluten Free Centre is growing fast and gaining popularity. Winning the Small Business Sunday award from Theo Paphitis on the week of its launch gave the Centre instant visibility and helped making the launch a huge success. On Facebook alone it has a following of more than 14,000 people and in the past 6 weeks over 300 people have joined its online community as registered members (the membership is free).

To enter the competition for the hamper, visitors to the site are asked to find their favourite food brands, restaurants, take aways or shops, leave a rating and write at least three helpful reviews which should help other to make a more informed decision.

The deadline for the competition is midnight on Friday December 5. For details visit
