The impact of Norfolk’s Purple Picnic events
Your Purple Picnic fundraising makes a real difference to the lives of bereaved children & young people.
“Nelson’s Journey listened. They gave me hope. I mattered again. And most of all, they gave me my smile back”
Anyone can host a Purple Picnic
Each summer, schools, work colleagues, friends & families hold their own Purple Picnic. Some will be remembering a special person that has died too. All of them will be fundraising to support Norfolk’s bereaved children and young people. Join in the fun and sign up today!
Some people and groups will hold virtual Purple Picnics this year: if your event is hosted by a workplace, then this a great way to involve colleagues who are working from home or at other sites. Simply set-up your usual video meeting software and invite your guests digitally. Donations can be collected online too!
In 2020, Purple Picnics are taking place a little later in the year than usual due to Covid-19. Our official Purple Picnic week in 2020 is 21st – 27th September, but hold one whenever is convenient for you and your guests – and if yours will be a physical get-together, then don’t forget to check the latest guidance on social distancing before your event starts!
