We had serious hunger pangs watching your posts from the Big Picnic come in. What colourful and delicious events you produced for  Sarcoma Awareness Week

Thank you for sharing your photos with us as well. Have a look on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for posts with #BigPicnic and #SAW2017 for a snapshot of the energy involved -you really threw yourselves into it!

Here are some of your events. If we've missed yours, just let us know and we'll be happy to add it.

You amplified awareness and raised all-important funds - in a very tasty way!
