The Big Help Out

Monday, May 8, 2023 was designated a UK bank holiday in honor of the King’s Coronation. The royal family suggested people volunteer as part of “The Big Help Out” on this day across the United Kingdom in tribute to the King’s lifetime of public service. The Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and “The Big Help Out” highlight issues His Majesty has dedicated his life to, including: the importance of local communities, sustainability and environmental protection, and showcasing youth and diversity. The objective was to encourage volunteerism to bring communities together to create a legacy from the coronation weekend.

The BABCPHL contributed to “The Big Help Out” by collaborating with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and the British Consulate New York on a UK-themed teacher appreciation lunch at Bodine High School for International Affairs. Bodine High School for International Affairs was co-founded by the Council in partnership with the School District of Philadelphia. We were honored to work with the Council and the Consulate to highlight King Charles’ commitment and to recognize the important work of Bodine High School teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week here in the US.

A delicious offering of food carefully curated and created by Stargazy, an East London pie and mash shop in the heart of South Philadelphia was set-up in the teacher’s lounge at Bodine from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Teachers, staff and administration filtered in throughout the day to sample the British fare.
