Socially distanced Big Lunch in Dollar Park hosted by Falkirk Woodcrafters

Monday, 21 June 2021

Woodcraft Folk hosted an annual charity event called Big Lunch in Dollar Park on Saturday June 6. This year people not only met safely in person, but they were also encouraged to get together virtually. They united in a nationwide act of community friendship while having plenty of fun and food for everyone on the day. The purpose of this event is to reduce isolation, improve mental health and bring people together to build better connected communities.

A Woodcraft Folk spokesperson said: “Every week thousands of volunteers and young people meet in school halls, community venues and a host of other places to learn about big ideas through fun activities like singing, camping, playing and debating. Our aim is to have great fun, but also to try to develop children’s self-confidence and build their awareness of society around them.”
