Big Lunch launch Wales

23 April, 6.30pm

We love meeting with you face-to-face, but due to the current official Government and Public Health advice, we’re having to postpone a lot of our network get-togethers. We’ve planned a designated call for our Welsh participants to chat about the challenges as well as the community spirit happening in your community and all across Wales.

23 April

World Book Night is a national celebration of reading and books which takes place on 23 April every year. Books are given out across the UK with a focus on reaching those who don’t regularly read and are gifted through organisations including prisons, libraries, colleges, hospitals, care homes and homeless shelters.
