Big Lunch in a street
Raise spirits and funds this summer

With so much distressing news on the world stage, summer celebrations might be far from your mind. But, the longer, brighter days are bringing some welcome cheer and we know that The Big Lunch can be a great way to raise spirits and much-needed funds for good causes.

So, this summer, we’re bringing you lots of ways to get together and hold events big and small, however works best for your community.

The Big Jubilee Lunch is part of the official celebrations for HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, 2-5 June, and The Big Lunch will once again kickstart a whole Month of Community.

To get started, check out our quick video guide and watch the replay of our March ‘How-To’ session, to grab some tips from our lovely Communities team.
