The Big Walk is an epic journey as 4 walkers from all 4 nations start out in Morecambe and walk for 3 weeks towards home, shining a light on ordinary communities and volunteers who are doing extraordinary things where they live.

Join Team Wales for a walk and talk around Bute Park, before sitting down together for a Big Lunch, ready for the real deal in your own neighbourhoods on 3rd June 2018.

The Big Walk and The Big Lunch bring people together and shine a light on fantastic community projects – many of which are National Lottery-funded – that are making a real difference to people’s lives across the UK. We’re proud to support them and hope to inspire many more to build the friendships and connections that help make communities thrive.

The Big Lunch is an idea from the Eden Project in Cornwall and was launched back in 2009 with the simple premise that ‘great things happen when you bring people together’

Lowri Jenkins of Eden Communities said:
“The Big Walk celebrates the great things people make happen where they live. The Big Lunch is a chance for people everywhere to build those friendships and connections locally, which help to create stronger, happier communities. Last year 9.3 million people had fun together at over 96,000 events across the UK – so come along to Bute Park this Saturday, join in the fun and find out what you can do to bring your own community together for a Big Lunch on June 3.”
