Great Big Purple Picnic 2020

All Day




Mental Health Awareness Week runs from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th May and we want to encourage as many schools, businesses, clubs and individuals as possible, to help us raise awareness by hosting their very own Great Big Purple Picnic. Help us smash the stigma of mental health in Northern Ireland!

Pictured above with our families is Great Big Purple picnic Ambassador Chef Stephen Jeffers of Forestside Cookery School who showed us how easy it is to cook up some healthy scrumptious picnic delights which were a hit with our parents AND kids!

Sign up now on our Eventbrite page and we will send you a fundraising pack to help you get inspired!  It’s full of ideas and information on how to organise your Great Big Purple Picnic. In the packs you’ll find hints and tips as well as promotional materials such as posters to advertise your picnic, printed place mats and purple bunting to use at your picnic and also materials to help you create your own collection boxes. Whether outdoor corporate team building, a school holding a bake sale or a family day at the park we would love you to get involved!
