By order of the King and Queen Consort, Thames Hospice is calling on its community to host a ‘Coronation Big Lunch’ in aid of the charity so more patients and families can get the vital hospice care and support they need.

The Coronation of The King and The Queen Consort will be a momentous occasion for the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and a fantastic opportunity to come together to celebrate and reflect on what matters most.

The Big Lunch, a nationwide action of celebration and friendship, will bring millions of people together to boost community spirit, reduce loneliness and support charities and good causes like Thames Hospice.

Claire Redrup, Head of Community and Events at Thames Hospice, says: “We are deeply proud of our long-held association with The Royal Family, from the moment we welcomed our first patients more than 36 years ago.

“We are only able to provide our services free of charge to all those who need us thanks to the generosity of our local community, and we really hope our community will respond by supporting us and hosting a Big Lunch, whilst celebrating the Coronation with neighbours, friends and family, sharing food and fun together.”

To raise funds for Thames Hospice whilst celebrating this historic royal occasion, please contact the Community Team for some fun ideas and a free fundraising pack which includes bunting, balloons, collection box and event poster. Email events@thameshospice.org.uk or call 01753 945627.

Claire added: “It’s the King and Queen Consort’s wish that people come together to support a good cause. By hosting a Big Lunch in aid of Thames Hospice, you could help our patients make their own coronation memories.”
