Public Affairs – Pat Douglas The WI proudly supports the NHS, Social Care and Frontline Workers Day on 5 July 2021, and we are delighted to be a part of this special celebration to say thank you for the continued hard work and dedication of NHS, social care and frontline workers. We are particularly so proud of the many incredible WI members are also NHS staff and frontline workers, our WI heroes, who throughout the pandemic have shown such strength and resilience by bravely stepping forward to support others.
We would love to see WI members across the country organise special Afternoon Tea events within their communities to mark the NHS and Frontline Workers Day and we encourage as many others as possible to get involved too. The WI has created a unique celebration cake, which can be made by people of all ages from all backgrounds, all across the country, and be shared together at the same time on this special day. We hope this will be an opportunity for communities, families, and friends to come together in whatever way possible, to truly celebrate our remarkable NHS and frontline workers.
Each ‘Afternoon Tea’ or tea and cake sale is to raise money for 2 excellent Charities NHS Together and the National Carer Association, with a coordinated cake cutting at 4pm.
