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.

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.
