Family fun day for Southampton paediatric IBD patients and their families - 1 July 2017

Saturday, 1 July 2017 - 10am-4pm

Marwell Activity Centre, South Downs National Park, Hurst Lane, Owslebury, Winchester, SO21 1EZ

The paediatric gastroenterology team is hosting a family fun day for families with children whose inflammatory bowel disease is managed at UHS. 

This event is designed to offer you the opportunity to hear short informal talks about IBD, and to learn more about the research projects you have been involved in. The talks are aimed at older children and adults – entertainment will be provided to keep younger siblings occupied!

There will be information stands for you to visit, and a chance to chat informally with members of the paediatric gastroenterology team at Southampton, and meet other families from around the region. Refreshments and lunch will be provided. There is also a bistro onsite, serving hot drinks and meals throughout the day.

After lunch, we have the opportunity to undertake an exciting activity such as kayaking, archery or climbing, to name but a few! Marwell Activity Centre offers an excellent location, with large open spaces, woodland, play parks and an indoor soft play centre for smaller children. 

To register your interest in attending, please email rachel.russell@uhs.nhs.uk or PIBD@uhs.nhs.uk. For more information, call 023 8120 3814.
