What is the Big Picnic at home?

Stay safe at home with your Big Picnic and spread the word about WAY!

During this extraordinary time, it is even more important to show support, understanding and friendship to each another. Therefore, we would like to invite all our members, friends, family and supporters to join us in a BIG PICNIC at home on 16th and 17th May 2020.  

How it works…

Whilst we are unable to physically meet up this year, we can all safely picnic at home.   Any style of picnic goes… whether it be a picnic blanket on the back lawn, a cream tea in the dining room, a coffee and cake on the balcony or even a street party style in your own front garden. All are welcome. We want everyone to take part, stay safe and have fun.

 You can also help to spread the word about WAY over our Big Picnic weekend. We would love to see your photos - so, let’s flood social media with images, tagged with #WAYBigPicnic2020 as we safely unite during this time.

WAY’s Membership Services Manager Colette Scarbrough-Jelfs told us: “Our members have shown incredible solidarity and have adapted quickly over the past few weeks, which is absolutely amazing, and we would like to continue this support over our Big Picnic weekend to make 2020 our biggest ever!”

 If you wish to, members can share the idea with their local community by displaying a poster in their window, sharing your ideas and photos on social media or posting to local groups online. It would be great to see as many people as possible taking part and enjoying a picnic at home to support WAY. 

We ask everyone to stay safe – and however you choose to picnic, it should be in line with current government guidance.
