Millions of people came together on Sunday, July 4, to pay tribute to the ‘everyday heroes’ who have helped bring communities together throughout the pandemic as part of the country’s first ever Thank You Day.

Thousands of events took place across the country on Sunday, July 4 to mark the inaugural Thank You Day, with barbecues, street parties, litter picks, sport sessions and afternoon teas held to pay tribute to carers, coaches, volunteers, NHS staff and community leaders.

The day started with a Mr. Motivator warm-up session before people were encouraged to go outside and exercise for the remaining exercise hour.

Middle Sunday Opened Up saw over 400 people from the local community enjoy free tennis, LTOs up and down the country held family fun days, or included a thank you day picnic at the end of their session.

#THANKYOUDAY took over social media, and even made the BBC news programmes  - watch again here

Thank you to everyone who took part, shared on social and came together to spend time just to pause, reflect and say thank you!
