On Sunday 4th July, organisations and individuals across Scotland and the UK are coming together to say Thank You to everyone who got us through the challenges of the pandemic so far.
In Scotland, Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland’s supporters are arranging their own Thank You Day Tartan Tea Parties across the country – and we’d love for our NHS and Social Care colleagues to join us in celebrating the day.
Thank You Day began with a proposal from just 13 individuals – including stroke survivor Debbie Matthews in Perthshire – and is now supported by hundreds of different organisations, celebrities, religious leaders, sports stars, councils, schools, business and communities across the country.
Can you show your support for Thank You Day by:
- Hosting your own Tartan Tea Party – Sign up to host a Tartan Tea Party (virtually or check local Covid guidelines) and get exclusive recipes from celebrity chef Tom Kitchin to make your party extra special! www.chss.org.uk/thank-you-day
- Turning social media tartan on Thank You Day! On 4th July, wear tartan, take a selfie with a cuppa and say who you’re thankful to. Remember to share using #ThankYouDay #TartanTeaParty and don’t forget to tag @CHSScotland!
Our aim is for as many people as possible to be involved, in whatever way they would like, so that everyone who deserves it gets a thank you and the whole of the country gets together. After the challenges of the last 16 months there are so many people across Scotland’s communities who have been doing what they can to make a difference to people’s lives, from NHS workers through to volunteers, and Thank You Day is our chance to celebrate everyone who has made a difference.
