Over 16 million Brits are planning to take part in the country’s first ever national thank you day on Sunday the 4th of July.
According to new polling by ICM Unlimited 16.3 million Brits would expect to join in events where they happen in their local communities. This would make the day the biggest mass participation event since the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
The idea of Thank You Day came from a grassroots campaign to hold the country’s biggest ever thank you party in our local communities as a way of thanking each other and of building on the community spirit that so many felt during lock down.
From the idea being launched just a month ago the campaign has won huge support from hundreds of organisations ranging from the NHS to the Scouts and from high profile individuals including Gary Lineker, Michael Sheen, Dame Judi Dench, Raheem Sterling and many more. All events will be in line with current government guidance. For more information visit thankyouday.org.uk.
Here in Bramcote the 2nd Bramcote Brownies and Bramcote Rangers have added their tribute at the start of King George V Park next to the tennis courts. Members of 2nd Bramcote Brownies painted stones to form the Rainbow, followed by members of Bramcote Rangers tiling the NHS board to go alongside it.
