On NHS 72nd birthday say #ThankYouTogether

4 July 2020

Rovers will join EFL clubs to say #ThankYouTogether on the 72nd birthday of the National Health Service this Sunday.

To celebrate the NHS’ birthday, people have been asked to share their thanks to NHS staff, key workers, neighbours and friends who have been helping us get through the pandemic by using the hashtag #ThankYouTogether.

July 5 will be a moment for everyone to reflect on  the work our communities have recently endured, stand in solidarity to mourn our losses and thank those who are risking so much to keep us safe.

The communities will be thanking key workers from truck drivers and cleaners to doctors and shelf stackers. 

It will also be a thank you to our neighbours, the ones who did the shopping, got the prescriptions, kept an eye on each other and did their best to stay home and save lives.

On July 5, Rovers will be highlighting the work of Club Doncaster Foundation’s Home Goals which has helped hundreds of people with their physical and mental health during lockdown, we’ll be celebrating young fan Millie who went above and beyond to help an 89-year-old care home resident feel less lonely by sending care packages, and talking about b:friend who have been combating loneliness while we spend more time in isolation.

“July 5 2020, which is the birthday of our NHS, is about saying thank you to everyone without whom the NHS wouldn’t have been able to respond to the coronavirus” said NHS chief people officer Prerana Issar.

At 5pm on July 5, the NHS is asking for everyone to join in for a one-off clap – the loudest ever - to say thank you to everyone who has helped us through the crisis so far and raise a glass, mug, or cuppa to our friends, families, colleagues and neighbours.
