A Day to Say Thank You

Thank you. Those two words don’t take much to say but mean the world. 

Thank You Day began with a handful of organisations looking for a way to enable us all to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone and everything that helped us through the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the campaign has only got bigger and bigger and it has helped make communities feel more united. 

Charities have struggled with another tough year with rising bills and extra challenges, but with families, friends, and communities all clubbing together we can all get through this. 

A Million Ways to Say Thank You

Whether you’re thanking your local charity for the amazing care they provided to someone you know. 

Thanking the nurse who was with you holding your hand when you was scared. 

Hospice nurse

Thanking your neighbour for helping you with getting your groceries. 

Thanking your family for the love and support they have given you. 

Husband and wife thankful for each other

Thanking your colleague for their advice when you needed it most. 

Thanking your best friend for looking out for you.

Saying thank you means a lot to so many who are doing good in this world.

We are saying a HUGE thank you to our wonderful lottery supporters. Without you and your monthly lottery commitment, we couldn’t do the fantastic work we do with our charity partners up and down the UK. You are incredible and your £1 lottery play is making a huge difference for now and the future.
