Be part of Thank You Day 2022

Sunday 5 June 2022 is Thank You Day, when we’ll celebrate all those serving our communities

Time to say thanks

Thank You Day is all about recognising the contributions of the everyday heroes who make our communities great places to live. And that includes our incredible Scouts volunteers.

The aim is to get as many people as possible to say thank you to whoever deserves it, whether that’s to the Queen, each other or the organisations that make such important differences.

This year, the date ties in with the final day of the Queen’s 70th Jubilee celebrations. It’s a great opportunity for a UK wide moment of togetherness. It’s the perfect antidote to the loneliness and isolation many of us felt during the lockdowns of the last two years.

Last year, hundreds of organisations took part and this year we want to make it one of the biggest ever party’s the UK has ever seen.

Beginning with just 12 individuals proposing a Thank You Day in 2021, the day is now supported by hundreds of organisations across the country and across sectors, from the Church of England to The FA, the Eden Project, Royal Voluntary Service to Scouts and Girlguiding.

How to get involved

1. Save the date - Sunday 5 June is Thank You Day so please get it in your diaries!

2. Start thinking about who you’d like to thank on the day and how you might celebrate, for example by hosting a Big Lunch

3. Look out for more updates on this page – including posters and social media assets

'More important than ever'
