Mandela Day – Acts of Kindness

18 July

Join us to celebrate Mandela Day, as we join in the Acts of Kindness campaign with Mandela8

Mandela Day takes place every year on the 18th July. Nelson Mandela inspired the idea for Mandela Day at his 90th birthday celebrations in Hyde Park, London when he said: “It is time for new hands to lift the burden. It is in your hands now”. The idea of Mandela Day is that everyone has the ability to make an impact and do something in their own way to change the world and the world of those around them.

Mandela8’s Mandela Day: Acts of Kindess campaign (formerly ‘My 67 Minutes’) encourages everyone to take time out of their day to do something for someone else or for their community.

Liverpool BID Company are planning a series of events you can get involved with to give back to others and be kind to yourself on 18 July, including community litter picks and wellness activities. View our events here.

We will also be running giveaways for businesses to enter for Thursday 18 July, including:
