What is the Big Picnic at home?

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

As we move forwards into Summer, 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 15th and 16th May 2021.  

How it works…

Whilst many areas 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 whilst adhering to local guidelines 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 #WAYBigPicnic2021 as we safely unite during this time.

WAY’s Membership Services Manager Colette Scarbrough-Jelfs told us: “During 2020 our members showed so much support, we adapted together and have seen the charity grow and new friendships created.  We would like to continue to embrace the incredibly supportive and talented members who have really stepped up this year, with a Big Picnic at home event for May 2021!”

Members, Friends, Supporters and Fundraisers are free to share this idea with their local community by displaying a poster in their window, sharing 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.
