Hold a Coronation Big Lunch - East Cheshire Hospice

Hold a Coronation Big Lunch

Join the Coronation Big Lunch and help crown the new King in style with East Cheshire Hospice.

The Fundraising Team are giving away free fundraising packs for a weekend of national celebration from May 6-8.

Everyone is invited, whether it’s sharing a cuppa with a neighbour on the doorstep, or a bigger bash in the street.

The lunch box packs have balloons, bunting and Union Jacks to help parties go with a swing.

Getting into the coronation celebrations … Hospice fundraiser Bethan Wade and Becky Sidwell from the marketing team.

The packs, including collection cubes, are available from the Hospice. Either call in or telephone 01625 433477 or visit the website www.eastcheshirehospice.org.uk/biglunch

The Big Lunch is a nationwide act of celebration marking the historic coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

The aim is to bring families, friends, neighbours and communities together to share friendship, food and fun.

Thousands of events are planned across the country and the Hospice has produced its own packs so supporters can share the excitement and at the same time hopefully raise money for the charity.

Community fundraiser Claire Gorton said: “We’re encouraging people to get together to celebrate the coronation and fundraise for a local cause at the same time.

“Supporters will be organising lots of fun events and these packs will add colour as they enter into the spirit of the occasion.

“Big Lunch means anything – sandwiches, tea, cake and a chat, or whatever people want. You decide.

“But it’s not far off, so we encourage people to get in touch as soon as possible.”

Meanwhile, the Hospice’s Starlight Walk at Capesthorne Hall is fast approaching on Thursday, April 27, at 6 pm. The walk starts at 7 pm.

It is four years since Capesthorne last staged the walk in memory of loved ones. The event was at Adlington Hall last year after a Covid break.

Entry is £20 and £15 via the website. The dusk-time woodland walk, sponsored by Ford dealers Sidney Jackson, is over a 2.5km loop featuring atmospheric lighting and fire pits.

Walkers can complete the course multiple times. The last set off time is 8.30 pm, with the event closing at 10 pm. Tickets are available at www.eastcheshirehospice.org.uk/events/starlight-walk.
