On the 17th of June, Gwendolen Davis celebrated her 80th birthday by raising funds for Saving Faces! She celebrated in style with a fundraising party at the Queen Elizabeth Public House in Chingford. Seventy guests from 16 different countries were invited to a buffet lunch. The event also coincided with Jo Cox's husband's request for the celebration of things we have in common rather than concentrating on our differences.

HANA will continue as a national audit under new funding arrangements, and due to this change it will no longer be part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP). This is not the first audit to undergo such a change in status: the national IBD audit has also recently left the NCAPOP and transitioned to sustainable funding within the new IBD Registry.
