Big Lunch Extras

All those who have a Big Lunch this year and want to take further steps in their community can apply for an all expenses paid Community Bootcamp at the Eden Project, Cornwall.  This camp is funded by Halifax and Big Lottery. First off, you’ll come to Eden, in Cornwall, for a weekend to meet folk like you from across the UK get inspiration, skills and the confidence to make real, positive changes within your community. You’ll then get the opportunity to attend regional events near you and access a network of people just like you to share ideas and resolve problems together.
