The BIG Garden Party

Get together with friends and family and host a BIG garden party this August  to celebrate  summer.

Get ready to party

Get the gingham out, dig out your picnic basket and fire up the 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.

Weekend of 12-13 August

Fundraising target: £120
