The NHS, Social Care and Frontline worker day is a new annual day of gratitude, thanks and remembrance of all those who lost their lives due to COVID.

The first ever NHS, Social Care & Frontline Workers Day will take place on Monday 5th July 2021, whereby organisers encourage everyone to get involved with hosting events and fundraising for NHS charities.

Why the 5th July? It's a special date! The 5th July 1948 was an historic moment in our country’s history. It was the day our incredible National Health Service (NHS) was created, bringing free healthcare to everyone. We have treasured it ever since it's creation, but more so since the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are incredibly proud to be supporting this day and celebrating our NHS and Frontline workers with our event onboard on: Saturday 31st July 2021.
