The Big Lunch for charities

We know that great things happen when people come together, so we're inviting all charities to get involved and be part of The Big Lunch 2022.

This year, The Big Jubilee Lunch is an official part of HM The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations from 2-5 June 2022, and like last year, it will kick off a summer of community, friendship and fun as we team up with good causes across the UK for a whole Month of Community.

In 2021, £7.4million was raised at Big Lunch events, the majority of which (77%) is for local charities or causes, staying with the communities who need it. 

Whether you hold an event to fundraise for your charity, spread the word about what you do, or to thank your volunteers, you'll be joining millions of people across the UK, meeting and chatting over a bite to eat.

Below is everything you need to know about The Big Lunch, why it is important and how you can encourage and support your staff and customers to get involved.

If you have any questions or need more information, please get in touch and our team will be happy to help. You can also keep up-to-date with all things Big Lunch and Big Jubilee Lunch, by signing up to our monthly newsletter!
