As part of the Thank You Day celebrations colleagues at our stores across the UK have been showing their appreciation of local groups and carers – especially those supporting people with dementia – by handing out flowers and gift hampers.

Community champion Caroline Pettican from our Charlton store, pictured above, gave flowers and gifts to three groups – Greenwich Carers Centre, Irish Community Services and Puddingstone Grange care home.

She said: "We just wanted to say a big thank you to them. They all do such amazing work."

And at our Arnold store in Nottinghamshire, community champion Andie Wisher, pictured below, dropped off a "thank-you" hamper to Arnold Methodist Church.

She said: "There's so much more than a church; it's a centre, a home, a hub, a friendly face and a leading ear."

This year for Thank You Day colleagues will be also joining the national singalong starting at 12:55 PM on July 1 on BBC Radio 2 where Tony Christie has re-recorded “Thank you for Being a Friend" to honour the nation's carers and unsung heroes!

Here's what other stores have been doing across in UK:

Vicke Cable, community champion at our Lowestoft store, pictured below, donated a thank you hamper to the Kirkley People Forum at Community Action Suffolk "for all the great work they have been doing in the area."

And Joanne Sage, community champion at our Bridgend store, pictured below, visited Cornelly Development Trust to give them a gift hamper. She said: "They do such fantastic work in the community."

Community champion Catherine McCallion from our Larne store, pictured below, popped along to the Larne Dementia Friendly Choir who gave a great rendition of Thank You for Being a Friend. She said: "We wanted to thank the singers, carers and singing tutors for all their hard work."

Emma Bradbury, community champion at our Worksop store, pictured below, popped along to Now Church to present them with a thank you hamper. She said: "This church is very active around Worksop and it's been a lifeline for many. "

And Hazel Cuthbert, community champion at our Stenhousemuir store, below, handed a thank you hamper to KLSB Community Group. She said: "They said they were delighted to be honoured in this way and, although they don't do it for the praise, they were over the moon that someone was saying thank you."
