Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Thank You Day.

Over 16 million Brits are planning to take part in the country’s first-ever national thank you day on Sunday the 4th of July.

According to new polling by ICM Unlimited 16.3 million Brits would expect to join in events where they happen in their local communities. This would make the day the biggest mass participation event since the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

The idea of Thank You Day came from a grassroots campaign to hold the UK’s biggest ever thank you party in local communities as a way of thanking each other and of building on the community spirit that so many felt during lockdown. 

Members of the public are being encouraged to mark the days in numerous different ways from picnics to BBQs, outdoor parties to drinks.

Starting from just 13 individuals proposing a Thank You Day, the idea is now supported by hundreds of organisations across the country, ranging from the Scouts and Guides to Rotary and the Royal Voluntary Service, NHS, The Mirror and the Sun, the Football Association and the Church of England.
