13 June 2021

I Love MCR launches the first ever “I Love NHS Day” on Sunday 13th June to say “thank you” to our National Health Service, its key workers and to raise money for NHS Charities Together…

Why 13 June?

The date of 13th June is 12 months since the ‘social bubbles’ came into existence after the first lockdown in the UK, which were only achievable thanks to the tireless work and commitment from NHS workers.

Why Manchester?

Manchester is synonymous with the NHS and was the location of the first hospital to offer free healthcare to all, giving birth to a National Health Service in 1948. 

Since then Manchester has continued to be a city dedicated to the work and support the NHS provides and was the location for one of the first Nightingale Hospitals in 2020 at Manchester Central.

Born out of adversity, I Love MCR knows a thing or two about launching a social campaign during a pandemic.

The chosen charity

NHS Charities Together is the national charity caring for the NHS. We are the national charity partner of the NHS and we are made up of 240 NHS charity members based with hospitals, mental health, ambulance and community health services across the UK.

Registered Charity No 1186569 (England & Wales)
