Hundreds of people, businesses, and charities have come together to help create what is now St. Andrew’s Day creating a wave of friendliness to lift spirits in one of the country’s most challenging years in decades.
The Scottish Government’s “A Million Words of Kindness” campaign on the St. Andrew’s Day 2020 kicked off last week with the unveiling of a bespoke postcard by Scottish illustrator Emily Hogarth and a short film depicting the moments of kindness that have brought people together across the country this year.
Scotrail, Loganair and CalMac were among the transport networks that took pictures of the postcard in some of Scotland’s most beautiful locations, from Barra Beach in the Outer Hebrides to the historic Queen Street Station in Glasgow and the ferry terminals in Oban Bay, Ardrossan and Mallaig Harbor.
The country’s best-known tourist attractions also shared friendly messages on their social media pages featuring postcards at Edinburgh Castle in the capital, Caerlaverock Castle in Dumfries & Galloway, Blackness Castle in Linlithgow and St. Andrew’s Cathedral in the historic namesake town of the National Day showed up thanks to support from the Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions.
Overall, the St. Andrew’s Fair Saturday Festivals and the BEMIS Scotland celebrations leading up to St. Andrew’s Day held more than 50 virtual events in cities across the country. More will follow today.
With support from the Scottish Government, the events are designed to bring diverse communities together to celebrate the resilience, community spirit and shared kindness that have helped us all survive these difficult times.
This was all complemented by a series of online and social media messages from people around the world checking in with friends, family and neighbors, passing on messages of thanks for the moments that have helped everyone over the past year – from shopping to Chatting on the street shopping – this year it will be friendlier when it is needed most.
Culture Minister Fiona Hyslop said: “I am delighted that so many people have been inspired by the“ A Million Words of Kindness ”campaign launched this year to promote the St. Celebrating Andrew’s Day.
“The support it has received shows that kindness is what we are as a nation and continuing to show compassion for one another will help lift our spirits at a time when it is really needed.
“In addition to the many kind words shared in the post and on social media platforms, the online arts and culture program our partners have launched for people across the country has been fantastic and I encourage everyone to take some time enjoy them. ”
Local community groups across Scotland, supported by BEMIS Scotland, celebrate today’s National Day with multicultural music and dance performances, the distribution of food, arts and crafts materials and family-friendly pampering packages, and friendly messages from community groups to healthcare professionals and caregivers.
The St. Andrew’s Fair Saturday Festival began on Saturday and the celebrations culminated today at St.. Andrew’s Day.
The festival aims to celebrate the arts and to spread support for social and cultural purposes by promoting cultural events and performances.
