The #DACrowdfund is now finished!

After 4 weeks of campaigning, the #DACrowdfund has come to an end!

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone that supported us. Our final sum was £1,635 which will help us on our way to producing and publishing the ultimate gluten free guide book – “Goodbye Gluten, Hello Delicious”.

Although we did not reach our goal of £16,000, we are still looking to make this book. A reference of this kind would be such a huge helping hand to those who are starting out on a restricted diet, and could give new ideas to more experienced coeliacs.

Thank you b

Delicious Alchemy’s Gluten Free Charity: Live on BBC Radio Sheffield

Our Founder Emma Killilea went live on BBC Radio Sheffield this week to raise awareness of the The Delicious Alchemy Charitable Foundation.

As a coeliac, Emma is passionate about helping improve the lives of people on restricted diets – day by day. The Foundation will help to achieve this aim by donating gluten free food to UK food banks supported by the Trussell Trust, and helping research programmes and other charities improve the lives of those on free from diets.

Our first fundraising project for the Foundation is almost at its end – we are raising funds to create the ultimate gluten free guide book to help those on restricted diets adjust to their new lifestyle. ‘Goodbye Gluten, Hello Delicious’ is being written by Emma, and we need YOUR help to make it happen! Click here to find out more about the #DACrowdfund.

Rebecca Smith AKA Glutarama is supporting the #DACrowdfund

We are now one week into the #DACrowdfund! In our first week, we have received over £1,000 in donations – and we are absolutely thrilled! This milestone is a real achievement, and we are super grateful to all of you who have donated so far.

Our good friend Glutarama has put together a short video, explaining why she chose to support our project, and how it may have helped her if our book was available when her daughter was diagnosed coeliac, seven years ago.
