Forum Central is supporting the 2019-20 Big Thank You Campaign.
This is a way of encouraging people to recognise the hard work and dedication of all those who help keep the city – and each other – going through winter and beyond.
It gives people a chance to say thank you to their unsung heroes from all walks of life, such as colleagues, relatives, neighbours, unpaid carers and community groups, as well as organisations.
It’s easy to take part. Visit the website – bigthankyouleeds.co.uk – or post your message on social media using the hashtag #BigThanksLeeds or tagging @BigThanksLeeds
The campaign was first launched in 2018, when more than 1600 people got in touch to thank someone who had helped them.
In 2019, we want to encourage even more people to recognise all those who make a difference during winter.
Saying thank you
Thousands of individuals and hundreds of organisations help people in Leeds stay well and safe, as well as keep the city going throughout winter.
People can choose to thank their neighbour, a carer or a colleagues – anyone who they feel deserves that recognition because of the help they have provided this or previous winters.
Examples might include people who loan their 4×4 vehicles to support community nursing staff; services that pull together to deliver great support; neighbours who help out with shopping or check in when the temperatures drop.
People can choose to thank their neighbour, a carer or a colleagues – anyone who they feel deserves some recognition because of the help they have provided in this or previous winters.
They can take part by visiting www.bigthankyouleeds.co.uk where they will be able to post their thank you.
If they’re on Twitter, they can also post a message using the hashtag #BigThanksLeeds
