Thank You Day – Sunday July 4th
24th May 2021

After a hard 18 months, we’ve all got someone to say thank you to. Whether it’s the neighbours for checking we were okay or the delivery drivers who kept food on the shelves. Maybe it’s the volunteers who helped get the vaccine out, or the kids for learning from home. That is why the organisers of Thank You Day want us to get together to say thanks to them all.

So, Sunday 4th July has been designated as Thank You Day, and we’re joining alongside some amazing organisations including the NHS, Royal Voluntary Service, the Scouts and many, many more to help say ‘thank you’ to all those millions of people across the UK who so deserve it. To help celebrate, we’ve created this great new card design, which you’ll find under our ‘Thank You‘ occasions page. A Charity Voucher is a perfect way to show your thanks!

Thank You Day 2021

So, join in the celebrations, and find out more about how you can take part and spread the word about Thank You Day.
You’ll find all the information you need at the special Thank You Day website.
