Big Yellow Party
Friday 19th – 6- 7pm
It’s been a tough time recently, especially for the thousands having to balance the demands of CF with life during COVID-19, and we want to celebrate the strength and resilience of our amazing community.
As part of Wear Yellow Day we are holding a Big Yellow Party on Zoom, and would love you to join us! There will be music, dancing, fun, surprises and, of course, plenty of yellow. We’ll have more details soon so watch this space!
Although this is a free event, if you are able to support the Cystic Fibrosis Trust during this time by donating, please do so here: https://www.facebook.com/donate/339289250381443/
As well as attending our party, we’d love for you to organise your own Big Yellow Party Fundraiser. Whether it’s a tea party, a silent disco or a karaoke. The Trust and fellow supporters will be sharing lots of tips, hints and ideas you need over the next few weeks.
Maybe it’s your first time holding an online event and you’re not sure where to start. Maybe you’re a fundraising veteran and want to try out some new ideas. Whatever you have planned for your party and wherever you are in your fundraising journey, we’re here to help.
We’d love to hear what you’re planning, and if you need any support materials such as balloons, banners etc. then please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.

CAN I WATCH FROM OUTSIDE THE UK? 🌍
Yes! You don’t need to be in the UK to enjoy this year’s summer solstice. With our live stream, you can watch from anywhere in the world.
