GIST Support UK is changing its name!

Join our FREE ENTRY LUCKY DRAW / Photo competition and help us to spread the word(s)…  GIST Cancer UK!

As many of you will know GIST Support UK (GSUK) is in the process of changing names to GIST Cancer UK (GCUK) so that everyone can understand that GIST is cancer.  

Continuing the soft launch of our name change we are now working in partnership with a team of students from the University of Bath Rotork Community Challenge to run a social media campaign and competition designed to raise awareness of our new name and the work of the charity.

If this campaign is to be a success we need as many people as possible to get involved, so please tell everyone you know to join in and help while having some fun with our photo competition.

To take part all you need to do is:

  • either take a photo of our new GCUK logo (above) in an interesting or unusual place and share it on the social media platforms outlined below or you can email a copy of your photo to us.


To post your photo on our Instagram or Facebook page:


If you are not active on social media please email the photo to

You can also support the campaign by following us on Instagram and/or Facebook and sharing our posts and then tagging us in your own posts!

Please use any of the following hashtags

  • #GISTCancerUK
  • #GistcancerUK
  • #gistcanceruk
  • #paws-gist

Everyone who supports the campaign either by submitting a photo and/or promoting the campaign on social media will be entered into a Lucky Draw with great prizes, including Amazon vouchers (kindly donated by the University of Bath Rotork Community Challenge team).

This Lucky Draw is running for one week only (Tues 26th November to the Tues 3rd December) so please get snapping, following, sharing and tagging!
