Wyre Council and the Marine Hall joins the NHS 72 anniversary in saying thank you together

nhs Published Tuesday, 30 June 2020

On the evening of Saturday 4 July, national landmarks will be lit up in blue as part of a collective memorial across the country.

We will be lighting up our dome at Marine Hall at this time and you can join in by placing a light in your window – an LED candle, a lamp or a torch.

At 5pm on Sunday 5 July there will be a pause for applause. At 5pm, join with the one-off clap – the loudest ever – to say thank you to everyone who has helped us through the crisis so far. Raise a glass, mug or cuppa to our friends, families, colleagues and neighbours.

This will be a moment for everyone to reflect on what our communities have recently endured, stand in solidarity to mourn our losses, and thank those who are risking so much to keep us safe. It’s a chance to thank everyone the truck drivers, the cleaners, the doctors and shelf stackers, all of the key workers who have kept us going. It will also be a thank you to our neighbours and our many local community volunteers, the ones who did the shopping, got the prescriptions, kept an eye out for each other or simply did their best to stay home and save lives.

So this weekend, in whatever way you can, join us and the rest of the nation for a country-wide thank you together.
