Regrettably, the Gratitude Games has been postponed until May 2023 – please read the letter below:
The BTBA is getting behind the Gratitude Games to support the mental health of Emergency Responders.
We wanted to show that The BTBA recognise their vital contribution and give both our members and the public the opportunity to express their thanks.
This is why we are supporting the Gratitude Games 2022, and why we are excited to let you know that the crowdfunder has launched today!
The Games want to raise £10 million over five years to support improvements in mental health for the Emergency Services.
Help be a part of making a difference to the lives of our Emergency Services and NHS workers and donate, if you can.
