The Big Help Out

Lend a hand. Make a Change.

To mark The King’s Coronation thousands of organisations across the country are getting together to give us all the chance to help out in our own local communities.

Starting on Monday 8th May there will be opportunities for everyone to join in. Whether you are a big or small organisation, a community group or an individual, everyone can get involved, with opportunities for helping hands of all shapes and sizes!

From checking in on someone who’d like a bit of company or volunteering for a charity, the more of us who join in, the bigger help we will be.

As the cost of living crisis continues to affect many of us, we are supporting Letchworth Foodbank Between 6th and 13th May, incorporating the day of The Big Help Out, venues across Letchworth Garden City will be hosting collection points for the foodbank.  The service provides emergency food for local people in crisis.  The foodbank is currently asking for donations of tinned food, cereals, long life juice, tinned fruit, biscuits and tinned soup.  You can take your donations to:

Broadway Cinema & Theatre

Broadway Gallery

The Museum at One Garden City

Standalone Farm

You can find out more about how we help the community all year round, and volunteering opportunities and news, at  Or come and see us in person at the North Herts Volunteering Fair in Hitchin on Friday 12th May.
