The Big Jubilee Lunch: Now there’s a hearty fundraising idea!

iDE UK is supporting a brilliant fundraising initiative from the Eden Project: celebrate The Diamond Jubilee by organising a fundraising lunch with your neighbours and friends!

‘The Big Lunch’ nationwide communities event will take place on Sunday 3rd June and is set to be the way to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Held annually, The Big Lunch encourages communities across the UK to organise lunch events, getting neighbours and friends together in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.

This is where you come in! We’re encouraging our supporters to hold an event in their local community for iDE UK. It can be anything from a few neighbours getting together in their gardens to a full blown street party with food, music and decoration.

Can we give you some fundraising ideas? We certainly can! You can approach local shops and restaurants to donate food, or you can ask people to donate towards a venue that will host your event – it’s easy! You can also jazz up your party by holding competitions or raffles to help bring in some extra pounds too.

Start planning your event today! To find out more or request a FREE Information Pack online, just visit or call 0845 850 8181 to speak to one of the team.
