Our nation’s first national ‘Thank You Day’ is on Sunday 4th of July 2021. It’s all about saying a massive thank you to those in our communities who’ve helped us throughout the pandemic and beyond.
Having successfully joined up with a coalition supported by Marie Curie for the National Day of Reflection back in March, we wanted to extend this celebration of togetherness that happened over the past 18 months, over this difficult time!
Join us for Thank You Day
We believe it is important to take a moment to reflect and give thanks to all the NHS staff, Volunteers, Care Workers, Community and Faith Groups, Organisations and Charities who, despite torrid events, have pulled together to ensure that vulnerable people and those in isolation weren’t without critical care, compassion and support.
A Big Thanks
We want to give a very special thanks to the thousands of loyal followers who continue to help us recover and rebuild a network of forests around the country. Together, we are able to create inspirational and everlasting spaces in dedication to loved ones lost during the covid-19 pandemic.
Without your support and kind donations, we wouldn’t be able to make the forest a reality and grow a living legacy.
The Forest of Memories would also like to thank all those businesses who have shown interest in our vision, the landowners who have come forward to be part of our cause and those charities who believe that our community-led ‘Impact of Good’ initiative is something they want to partner with.
Importance of Giving Back
The Forest of Memories was set up a year ago to give back, to remember and reflect. So, for this first national Thank You day, we will join with organisations including the Scouts, Girl Guides, NHS and /together to remember and reflect in thanks to mother nature.
Keep Britain Tidy with Power Hour
Whilst The Forest of Memories is focused on remembrance by recovering and rebuilding our nation’s forests, – which needless to say will help biodiversity and help fight climate change, -however, on Sunday the 4th of July we will be adding to our environmental efforts by teaming up with Keep Britain Tidy to bring communities together and pledge a ‘Power Hour’ to show respect for our planet, our local green spaces and do our bit to make our neighbourhoods a little cleaner and more beautiful. Please spare that hour and do a little light litter picking with us.
Other ways to support
Perhaps you were fortunate and didn’t lose anyone close to you but as Covid-19 has impacted 1 in 10 people in the UK, you may know someone who has been affected by loss and needs support through their bereavement or even had not been given the chance to grieve at all. For you, we ask that you share Memory-Trees.com and offer them the idea of dedicating a tree in the name of their loved one gone to soon. Together, we will be able to help each other reflect, recover and rebuild.
Help us by offering an hour of your day and join the ‘Big Clean Up’ and share your efforts on social media with the #ThankYouDay on the 4th of July 2021.
