Huge thanks to everyone who went along to a Big Picnic event in May. The weather was incredibly kind and the sun shone down on most of our picnics at 31 locations up and down the UK – from Scotland to the Isle of Wight and from Wales to Norfolk. More than 1,000 members, friends, family and supporters came along to help celebrate WAY’s 21st anniversary.
WAY’s new CEO Rebecca Cooper had the chance to roll out her picnic rug with WAYers for the first time: “I had the pleasure of attending two WAY Big Picnics over one weekend,” she said.
“It was wonderful to have received such a warm welcome and to see so many happy faces. I had chance to chat to new members – the picnic being their first WAY event – and I also met members who had been involved with our charity for over 18 years. It was a fantastic opportunity to experience what WAY is all about. It’s great to know that WAY members, friends, family and supporters across the UK were coming together and having a thoroughly enjoyable time in the sunshine.”
