Frequently Asked Questions:

The group hosting the event will fund the ‘project’ aspect of the day i.e. buying paint or tools to complete the work and the District will fund the social aspect as well as refreshments. This year the District will be using funds from the Restart Grant awarded to us following COVID.

We want to give you a chance to go home and change, make arrangements for children to be looked after during the evening and come back all fresh and ready to party!

Group Lead Volunteers will receive and email on how to share their idea with the District so that it can be entered into the competition. All pitches / ideas for next years project (one per group) will be displayed at the Big Help Out Event on Saturday 8th with a ballot box style voting system. The project with the most votes will be announced in the evening.

The ‘host group’ will include advertising this event to the local houses and businesses in their upcoming programme
