Hi <<First Name>>

There are so many individuals out there that help people in Leeds stay well and help keep the city going throughout winter, now we want to say a big thanks to the city’s winter heroes.

The ‘Big Thank You’ campaign gives people a chance to say their thanks to anyone they think deserves one. We are also encouraging people to be winter heroes this year by taking simple steps to look after themselves, their loved ones and any vulnerable neighbours. 

The campaign is a partnership approach involving the city’s NHS organisations, Leeds City Council and community and voluntary organisations recognising the dedication and hard work our own staff do every year to help people through winter. We also want people to recognise the city’s winter heroes from all walks of life such as unpaid carers and community groups supporting people every day.
