The day will start at 11.30am with an ecumenical service led by Bishop John Arnold at Westminster Central Hall. After this, at 12.30pm, CAFOD supporters will march through the streets in a ‘walk of witness’ from the hall to the main event in Hyde Park, calling attention to the campaign as they go.

Gates at the main event will open at 1pm for a 2pm start. There will be celebrity speakers and activites for people of all ages, so bring the whole family along and make an even bigger impact for IF!

To help ensure that our demands do not fall on deaf ears, we are asking all our supporters to bring pots and pans with them so that, when the time is right, we can make a really big noise for those living in hunger.

Help show the world what a BIG difference we could make IF we get the attention of the G8! You could make a banner, wear a food-themed costume or organise some friends into an attention grabbing display in IF t-shirts. To help get you started on your own Big IF, download the Big IF Guide here.

Be sure to wear any CAFOD clothing you might have to help make CAFOD’s presence felt! You can also order a special CAFOD IF Campaign t-shirt for a suggested donation of £5, or an IF wristband for £1.50, by getting in touch with the CAFOD Westminster office on 0208 449 6970 or westminster@cafod.org.uk.

We need to make this event as big as possible to make sure the G8 leaders hear our demands. Add your voice to IF by booking your place now, using our online booking form here. Please also spread the word to friends, family and anyone else you know who may want to join us in helping to make 2013 the beginning of the end of world hunger.
