Royal Mail gets into the spirit of Thinking of You Week with their own video.

With just days till Thinking of You Week, Royal Mail has released a video asking who you will be thinking of this year. In the wake of all the chaos of 2020, everyone is being encouraged to stay connected and let someone you know that you are thinking of them – it could be a parent, sibling, neighbour or friend. It is the gesture that is important, as well as being a great way to support businesses as they try to rebuild.

Royal Mail join the long list of industry bodies getting involved in the seventh year of the initiative. Independent retailers from across the country are participating along with all the major supermarkets plus Clintons, Scribbler, Paperchase, Card Factory and more.

Amanda Fergusson, CEO of the GCA is impressed by the extensive retailer engagement for this year’s event. Speaking about the importance of Thinking of You Week, Amanda said, “COIVD19 has isolated us from loved ones and work colleagues, leading the British to turn to cards to stay in touch: 2020 has seen a huge increase in people sending cards just to keep in touch, say ‘sending a hug’ ‘missing you’ ‘or similar. Sending and receiving cards has kept families in touch (and given home-schooling parents a craft project!), and friends or work colleagues a way to reach out. Receiving cards has been really important to people isolating alone, and of course something nice to put on the mantlepiece a constant reminder of that warm feeling that someone is thinking of you”.

It’s not too late to get involved, spread the word on social media, put posters in shop windows or give cards to your friends and neighbours. For more tips and ideas visit https://www.thinkingofyouweek.cards/category/news/
