Suffolk says thank you!

Suffolk says thank you’ campaign is designed to celebrate everyday acts of kindness by giving everyone in Suffolk the opportunity to recognise and thank others. This isn’t about exuberant acts or holding up ‘heroes’ but rather the regular, routine ways we are all helping each other at this time. The campaign has been developed by the Emotional Wellbeing in the Community group, which is a collaboration of a number of public, health and voluntary sector organisations tasked with meeting the challenges of COVID-19 and specifically to support people’s mental health over this period.

We encourage people to:

  • Share your thanks with others using a suite of free, downloadable materials from posters to thank you cards;

  • Share and upload photos, drawings and letters explaining who you would like to thank and to promote these messages – with express consent – on social media to celebrate those who are going the extra mile

  • Contribute to a virtual ‘noticeboard’ listing everything people can feel thankful for (beautiful countryside, friends, neighbours, NHS workers etc)

  • Link communities of kindness such as schoolchildren and care home workers, or football clubs and community volunteers

  • See your messages of thanks celebrated in local print and broadcast media, who will be engaged as part of the campaign to share positive examples of kindness, examples of ‘thank yous’ and the invitation for others to join the campaign
