PJ Brennan commented: "For one afternoon only, we're putting the drama of Hollyoaks
aside to get together and urge people to organise their own Big Jubilee Lunch to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.
"This is a great way to connect with your neighbours, friends or family to celebrate such an iconic occasion. Don't be shy - knock on your neighbours' doors and ask them for lunch."
Taking place on Sunday, June 3, the Big Jubilee Lunch is part of the programme of events to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and has the Duchess of Cornwall as its patron.
Organisers hope the project will encourage neighbourhoods to share lunch and "a few hours of community, friendship and fun" on the day.
The charity T-shirt is available from Asda stores nationwide and full details can be found on the Big Jubilee Lunch website
