MAKE, DO AND FUND WITH PATCHWORK

Organise your Big Lunch in one place using our new online tool.

1st - 2nd June

Lots of people used Patchwork last year to plan their Big Lunches, so we’ve partnered again to make sharing your Big Lunch plans and inviting your community to help make it happen, super easy. With Patchwork your friends and neighbours can choose whether to contribute their time, cash and/or skills – so it’s easy for you to connect with people who can offer time to help with logistics, collect donations to help fund the event, and inspire all those talented DJs, bakers and street decorators to get involved too.

How do I Use Patchwork?

1
Click on the template that best matches your event then personalise it by adding your own event details, photos and instructions.
2
Publish your patchwork to generate a unique website address (URL) then share with everyone via email, on social media and/or on printed flyers.
3
Friends and neighbours then view your patchwork to choose the things they want to help make, fund or do. You can keep track of pledges and contact people straight from your Patchwork account.

Patchwork is free to use and there’s no need to sign up to try it out today. If you want to use the platform to collect cash donations Patchwork charge a 3% commission on funds received. However this year they are waiving this fee for The Big Lunch. Just use the FREE CODE: THEBIGLUNCH. Funds received go directly into your PayPal or bank account via Stripe. You can read more about Patchwork's secure payment partners and their own fees here.
