National Thank You Day will acknowledge the incredible work done by volunteers during the pandemic
After a hard 18 months, we’ve all got someone to say thank you to. Whether it’s the frontline staff, the volunteers who helped with collecting prescriptions or making Check In and Chat calls, key workers like supermarket staff and bus drivers, or friends and neighbours– we want to get together to say thanks to them all.
This Sunday 4 July, volunteers across the country will be firmly in the spotlight for a national Thank You Day, and we’re joining some amazing organisations including the NHS, The Sun and The Mirror, ITV and the Scouts to say thank you to those who deserve it.
How you can join in
Cheers for Volunteers!
At 5pm on 4 July join in with a ‘Cheers for Volunteers’ and raise a glass (or a cup of tea!) and say a heartfelt thank you to the volunteers who have helped us through the past year.
Host a celebration event
Whether you are a volunteer and want to come together with fellow volunteers or you just want to mark the occasion and say thank you to everyone who helped and look forward to better times ahead!
