The Big Picnic

Share this page

It's nearly time for WAY's Big Picnic weekend! Come & join us at one of our picnics across the UK on May 18 & 19, meet some of our members & find out more about WAY.  

WAY’s annual Big Picnic weekend is a chance for people who have been widowed young to get together with other bereaved families – and for non-members to find out how the charity works. Last year, this national event attracted more than 1,000 people to 31 of the most picturesque parks, beaches and beauty spots across the UK – from Scotland to the Isle of Wight and from Wales to Norfolk. 

For more details, email us at enquiries@widowedandyoung.org.uk

We look forward to seeing you at one of our Big Picnic events!
