The BIG dinner 2 is a great chance to put lockdown behind you with a safe event for family or friends, your neighbours or maybe your club or community organisation.
Our first BIG dinner in 2015 was a huge success thanks to everyone who took part, so we have decided to hold another one to raise funds for our life-changing work.
The BIG dinner 2 campaign will run until New Year’s Eve 2021. There is no set format, no set date. All you need to host a Big Dinner 2 event is some good company and great food.
Good news. This is our last big fundraiser because in three or four years’ time we will hand over our busy Lilongwe 500 miles clinic to Malawi’s Ministry of Health, just as we are successfully doing this year with our clinic in Mzuzu.
500 miles will use the money from the BIG Dinner 2 to prepare for the handover of the Lilongwe centre and ensure it has ongoing support until it can self-sustain.
Supporting the BIG Dinner 2 campaign couldn’t be simpler. All we ask is that you host an event (within any lockdown rules of course) and ask your guests to make a donation to 500 miles instead of bringing the usual chocolates and flowers.
It can be morning coffee, cocktails and canapes, or a formal dinner party, it is up to you. Our Inspiration page has plenty of ideas for your BIG Dinner 2.
Throughout our campaign, you’ll find lots of recipes and cooking tips from friends and supporters of 500 miles on our Recipes & Tips page and on our Facebook page.
You can use our branded templates to invite friends and family.
Even if you can’t have your own BIG dinner 2, you can still donate to the campaign, or support other people’s events.
