Thank You Day: 4th July 2021

The last twelve months (and a bit) have been difficult for everyone, and there’s no way we could have all got through it without each other. From family members to key workers, good neighbours to volunteers, delivery drivers to teachers – we all have somebody to say thank you to.

At SLQ Sports Leaders, we’re indebted to the Centre staff who have continued to deliver our Qualifications and Awards, adapting to the changing circumstances to find new and inventive ways to keep learners building their skills. We also owe a huge thank you to the learners themselves, who have shown the resilience and tenacity needed to keep developing and discovering their strengths.

With this in mind, we’re joining the country’s biggest ever thank you party on Sunday 4th July. It’s the perfect chance for everyone to get together – families, communities or friends – either in person (if local restrictions allow) or virtually via social media to celebrate the spirt that’s got us all through these times and say thank you.

Originally started by 13 individuals, Thank You Day is now supported by hundreds of organisations across the country, ranging from the Scouts and Royal Voluntary Service, NHS, The Mirror and ITV, the Football Association and the Local Government Association.

It’s got the backing of Dame Judi Dench, Tim Peake and Ellie Simmonds, religious leaders, local councils and schools, businesses and community groups throughout the UK. The aim is for as many people as possible to be involved, however they would like, so everyone who deserves it gets a thank you – and the whole of the UK gets together.

So, how can you get involved?

There’s plenty of ways – many organisations are planning events on the day itself, including garden parties, barbecues and street events. You can find out more at or by checking out #thankyouday on social media sites.

Speaking of which, the easiest way to get involved is to simply say thanks on your chosen social channel with #thankyouday – you can tag or mention the person or organisation you’d like to shout out so that they know you’re thinking of them.

Keep an eye out for updates from organisations you’re connected to and don’t forget to join in the day’s events – thank you!
