Big Picnic for Hope
The Big Picnic for Hope, in aid of the Trussell Trust, is an opportunity for your household to be part of a virtual get-together, to help honour heroes past and present.
Many of us would have been commemorating the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8 May. Families and friends would have been gathering for street parties and celebrations around the UK, which unfortunately is no longer possible.
But even in the current lockdown we can still come together to recognise this date through our Big Picnic for Hope, allowing us to celebrate the heroes of our new ‘home front’: those risking their lives, the NHS, carers, delivery personnel, workers across food stores and public transport, and the remarkable collective effort of the nation to stay home and play our own individual part in helping to see this through. While staying at home we are still able to support the new heroes of the COVID-19 ‘conflict’.
Whether you are on your own or with other people at home we are inviting each household to have a picnic – indoors or outdoors – and to send in your photos for us to share with the world.
