The proverb “Many Hands Make Light Work” means if everyone helps with a large task, it will get done easily and quickly.
It was first recorded in English in the early 1300s in a knightly romance known as Sir Bevis of Hampton. It appeared in practically all proverb collections from 1546 on.
e.g. “Cleaning up the banquet room won’t take long if we all help; many hands make light work.“
e.g. “You do have a lot of dishes to wash, but you also have all of us to help you, and many hands make light work.“
e.g. “We need a few more volunteers to move the furniture-many hands make light work, you know .”
