Suffolk Says Thanks

Celebrating everyday acts of kindness


Taking the time to thank someone means a lot; often the small, everyday acts of kindness can make the biggest difference to people’s lives.

With COVID-19 changing our way of life in virtually every way, it has never been more important to show that we care and value others. There are lots of easy ways to get involved, thank someone who is important to you and share some joy.

Thank friends, family, neighbours, teachers, co-workers and others in your community, for everyday acts of kindness or support.

Please use our downloadable assets to send a message of thanks and/or upload a picture or message to our gallery, to help spread some joy.


We would like to thank all community groups and organisations that have already reopened or started to reopen so that they can continue to support their community.

If you’re group or organisation would like help and guidance about reopening – there is more information on the Community Action Suffolk website.
