And they're off! The klaxon has sounded and our four teams have set off on their separate journeys across the UK, to shine a light on the people who bring their communities closer together. Together we're walking up an appetite for The Big Lunch and inviting everyone to join in on the first weekend in June.
Over two weeks, the walkers will journey across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales and will walk home just in time to bring out the chairs and hang the bunting for their own Big Lunch – that’s what we call dedication!
Every day on their travels, the walkers will be connecting people and communities across the UK and finding out how they are preparing for our biggest weekend of the year. Our teams will be reaching out to people along the way, spreading the word about The Big Lunch and encouraging everyone to join in, share food and have fun where they live.
