A Big Laugh at the Big Lunch

Yesterday, (June 2nd), Strawberry Lemonade Events were delighted to take part in 'The Big Lunch', which is an Eden Project initiative to bring communities together.

Hosted at Montgomery Street Park in Edinburgh, the event saw SLE working in partnership with the award winning Invisible Cities (A walking tour social enterprise empowering homeless people into the tourism industry) to welcome over 30 eager attendees from a range of local organisations and community groups from Street Soccer Scotland, The City of Edinburgh Council, Police Scotland, Social Bite, The Homeless World Cup and Harmony Ridge Employment.

It might not have been "Sunshine on Leith" on this occasion however the rain did stay away as our guests limbo'd till the BBQ was ready.

A huge thank you to Paul, Community Champion from Tesco Duke Street who kindly sorted out a huge donation of burgers and buns for us.

Events like this are a great reminder that isolation can be broken down with a can of Irn Bru and a tea cake!
