Spring Office Picnic Launch!

The 2013 Spring Office Picnic is now officially underway!

This lunchtime we had a special launch event for the campaign at the Acorn House kitchen.

Friends from other HIV/AIDS charities based at Acorn House, including the Terrance Higgins Trust (THT) and Children with AIDS Charity (CWAC), joined us for an afternoon of nibbles, refreshments and a celebration of all things ‘picnicky’ in exchange for a £4 donation.

Kitchen Services Manager, Peter Blowers, (shown here having a well deserved rest) and a team of hard-working volunteers created some delicious pastries, salads and cakes which were polished off by over 40 guests.

We've test run a few recipes which we will be uploading to the website over the next few weeks so now is the time to get planning for your very own Spring Office Picnic(s) at your place of work. Simply ask people to prepare picnic dishes to share, and donate the money they usually spend on lunch to The Food Chain. In total we raised £203.63 at our picnic.

Your company can choose any date in March, April or May to hold a picnic. Why not register your company now?
