Dozens of celebrities from all over the UK have expressed their support for The Big Lunch this year by revealing what they would bring along to a lunch with their neighbours. The different answers ranged from food; like pork pies and a homemade Big Nutty Mango Salad to ideas; like optimism and hope, happiness and laughter, generosity and care.
For long-standing Big Lunch ambassador Barbara Windsor, it’s essential that ‘we all have fun and get to know each other…’ and chef Rick Stein said that going to a Big Lunch in the street is one of those things you have to do before you die. BBC Radio 1 presenter Scott Mills said ‘I can’t cook, but hopefully the sun will shine down on us that day and I will bring to the table the best barbecue ever using my expert skills with my tongs, inviting those close to me to eat, drink and celebrate this huge occasion.’
Peter Stewart, our Campaigns Director, stated that: ‘It just goes to show the beauty of The Big Lunch is that everyone brings something different – it doesn’t matter what it is as they all add to a fun lunch!’
