Ballymena’s ‘big lunch’


Ballymena looks set for some great summer street parties thanks to ‘The Big Lunch’

Friends and neighbours throughout the area are invited to take part in a funded get-together to build community spirit on Sunday, June 7.

Lisa Kirkwood, Chairperson of the organising committee for Ballymena’s Relay for Life, which is raising money for Cancer Research UK with an event at Ballymena RFC in June, is using The Big Lunch to help gather funds.

She said: “This year’s Relay for Life will include The Big Lunch. Relay for Life takes place over 24 hours from 11am Saturday 13th June to 11am Sunday 14th June. The Big Lunch will be part of this years’ event and will involve teams of families and friends coming together to celebrate and remember loved ones affected by cancer.”

Ballymena Halifax branch will be giving out kits to organisers to help make their event a success .

Halifax staff are also hoping to volunteer at Big Lunches locally.
