ANNUAL WINTER DINNER
Unfortunately this event could don't take place this year due to Covid-19 social distancing rule. However, we are optimistic for 2021 and have begun planning this overdue event.
The annual dinner is always a fantastic event, and one which is highly enjoyable. It is also one of the biggest events we hold and is vital for raising research funding.
CATRINA RAN THE BATH HALF
In March 2020 Catrina McNair raised £600 by taking part in the Bath half marathon
Catrina ran 22km for BDUK in just over 2 hours 14 minutes to raise awareness for bowel disease, sacrificing a toenail or 2 in the process.
RICHMOND PARK 12KM WALK
In September, 2017, BDUK held an organised 12km walk around the Tasmin Trail at Richmond Park.
The walk was a great success! We set out to walk 12km in 3 hours bringing together our supporters and the perfect way to make the most of the end of the warmer summer weather. All participants received a BDUK t-shirt and medal for taking part.

RHS Hampton Court FLOWER SHOW, 2016
We are extremely proud to have been awarded a GOLD MEDAL & the BEST SUMMER GARDEN for our Crohn's Disease Garden.
The garden was created by the Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer team, who were inspired by the life threatening affects of Crohn's Disease on young people.
The garden aimed to engage its visitors through unusual planting, which tells a story about how vibrant a young person's life can be even living with Crohn's. It communicated messages about plants, hydration and youth to raise awareness for this debilitating disease, the challenges it poses and the research for finding a cure to beat it.
