On 7th March 2015, 500 miles is holding the BIG dinner – a major fundraising event which aims to raise over £500,000 in a single night. The event consists of hundreds of separate dinners eaten all over the world, some of which will be showcased in a special web-stream broadcast.

Every dinner will bring new life and hope to someone in Africa who needs an artificial limb or limb support, to help them achieve mobility or full body function. All you have to do is host a dinner – or make sure you get invited to one. If you can’t cook or don’t want to, you can always host a carry out get together!
