We knew Patchwork was a super useful tool for organising events like birthday parties, hen dos and school quiz nights. But we didn’t expect for it to be used in such a BIG way by the brilliant people behind the Big Lunch and Big Iftar. We were over the moon when they got in touch looking for a way to help people organise their events in a useful, fun and easy way.
We partnered up with the Big Lunch and Big Iftar to create a set of bespoke readymade patchworks, making it easier than ever to bring neighbours together for a celebration of summer, community and friendship. All the budding Big Lunch organisers had to do was customise a template that matched the event they wanted to put on, then send it out to their neighbours. Then their community could choose how to get involved – whether it was making a cake, chipping in for the road closure fee, or organising games for the kids. The organiser could keep track of who was doing what in their account and easily get in touch with everyone to go through any details.
So if you’re going to a Big Lunch/Iftar this year, have a wonderful time meeting all of your neighbours. And if not, perhaps we can inspire you to organise your very own event for your community or local school.
