So, let’s get the nation talking over a cuppa and a bite to eat and have some fun with The Big ‘Virtual’ Lunch on 6-7 June 2020.

The Great Get Together: Together is connection, compassion, community

19th - 21st June 2020

Although we can’t get together, we can still connect together and use the Great Get Together weekend to build new connections. Join us June 19th-21st in celebrating the power of community. On the Great Get Together website, there are plenty of ideas to get you started thinking on how to do that whilst following the current social distancing guidelines. We hope they will inspire you to celebrate your community and the importance of connection. Join in with the Great Get Together here.

You can also download The Great Get Together Partner Toolkit to understand how your organisation can partner on the event.
