Do Lunch!

Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.

Join in on Saturday 1st July 2017

Summer is fast approaching, the days are getting longer and warmer, it must be time to DO LUNCH!

We want you to get together with your friends, family and colleagues on Saturday 1st July 2017 and grab some grub for Brain Tumour Research to help feed vital research! Whether it’s a BBQ bonanza, a perfect picnic or a three-course luncheon party, all funds raised will help sustain long-term, life-saving research at our UK Centres of Excellence. 

Every Do Lunch! event organiser will receive a free tea towel! Contact us to claim yours.

Fuel your feast with these great lunch ideas:

Do a BBQ lunch

Time to dust off the BBQ and get your friends and family together for some casual dining. Fire up the burner, organise some outdoor games and get sizzling!

Do a Picnic Lunch

If al fresco is more your thing, pack a picnic lunch and take your favourite  party of people to the park, down to the river or even onto the beach.  

Do a Three-Course Luncheon

Maybe you really want to push the boat out and host a gourmet three-course lunch! You could even choose a theme for your delicious lunch and give your guests a day to remember. A perfect excuse to have a silent auction or raffle.

Do Lunch! Outdoor activity ideas

Spice up your BBQ or picnic with some of these outdoor game ideas. Take your pick from this great selection to entertain your guests before, during or after your lunch. Ask for 50p-£2 a go and top-up your fundraising total! 

Skittles or Boules – Both classic garden games; ideal for a lazy afternoon in the sun at home or in the park. 

Waterbomb challenge – Stand in a circle and give each of your party guests a water-filled balloon. Take it in turns to throw one balloon at a time to someone across the circle. Take a step backwards for each successful catch (widening the circle). If the balloon explodes, that person is out. The winner is the last person standing!

Flap the Fish – Cut out your fish shapes, ready your newspapers and set a racecourse on a flat surface -- flap your fish along by smacking the floor behind it! A family favourite for children and adults of all ages. 

Musical Chairs – Set up a speaker and some chairs and you’re ready to play. Always have one chair less than the number of players, the person without a chair when the music stops, is out!

Coconut Shy – A fairground staple. Each player gets three turns and you can vary the distance to make it as tricky, or as easy, as you like!
