The BIG Garden Party

Get together with friends and family and host a BIG garden party this August bank holiday to celebrate the end of summer.

Get ready to party

Get the gingham out, dig out your picnic basket or clean your BBQ! It’s time get your glad rags on, play games, eat yummy food, pop a prosecco, make up a mocktail and have lots of fun catching up with friends and family while raising money to fund vital research.

In your garden, at work, in the park, on the beach, even virtually. It's up to you.

26, 27, 28, or 29 August 2022

Fundraising target: £150
