With the summer holidays ending this week, there are plenty of PR opportunities to use as leverage, from International Happiness at Work Week and World Tourism Day to the most up-to-date report on house prices by Nationwide.
NATIONAL TOASTED MARSHMALLOW – 30TH AUGUST 2021
Rounding off a blustery and mostly wet August in the UK is National Toasted Marshmallow Day, a national awareness event which conveniently helps us wave ta-rah to camping season in the UK. This could offer leverage if you’re working with staycation clients, camping clients or, alternatively your client is in the food industry! So whether your goal is to get people camping, or to offer weird and wonderful marshmallow based dishes, then is awareness day is for you.
NATIONAL FRIENDSHIP MONTH – FROM 1ST SEPTEMBER 2021
Easing us into the end of summer is the UK’s very own National Friendship Month which makes room for plenty of very light-hearted, fluffy PR campaigns. This could potentially see Brits across the isles celebrating their nearest and dearest, so a campaign which incorporates social media could work swimmingly! A full run down of what the awareness day is about can be found, here.
NATIONAL BE LATE TO SOMETHING DAY – 5TH SEPTEMBER 2021
An unusual but fun national day! If you have clients that work around office culture, perhaps you could pull some data around pulling sickies in the UK! Or you could do a top-tips piece on time management and speak to a psychologist. You could pull a survey on the top reason’s brits run late – is it traffic, or is it Starbucks? How ever you decide to swing it this national holiday, you can find everything you need, here.
