Jackie Baillie, MSP for Dumbarton Constituency, is calling on local people to take part in the nationwide Thank You Day on Sunday 4th July by holding a Tartan Tea Party.
Thank You Day is a chance for people to get together with their neighbours, friends and family to celebrate and say ‘thank you’ to those in our local communities who helped us get through the pandemic.
Charity Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland are encouraging people to host Tartan Tea Parties to say thank you by signing-up and receiving exclusive recipes from Chef Tom Kitchin and a free Tea Party pack to make their celebrations extra special. (chss.org.uk/tartan-tea-party)
A host of well-known faces are backing the national day including Michelin Star Chef Tom Kitchin, Lorraine Kelly, Dame Katherine Grainger, Michael Sheen and organisations such as the Together Coalition and Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.
The Tartan Tea Party is building momentum across the country and as well as celebrity backing, the charity’s supporters are gearing up for a day of celebrations.
Jackie Baillie MSP said
“I’m so thankful for everyone who has got our community and country through the last 16 months. From frontline NHS and social care staff, to our hardworking teachers, retail and hospitality staff, and all those who have volunteered to protect the most vulnerable in our society – we couldn’t have got through this without them.
“Which is why I’m getting behind Thank You Day and encouraging others to say an enormous thank you to everyone who has helped us all get through a year like no other.
“It would be wonderful if you could show your support and host your own Tartan Tea Party and say thank you to those who mean the most to you.”
