We’ve included a mix of serious and not so serious awareness days to give you flexibility with your messaging to your customers.

1st April – April Fools Day & Stress Awareness month
No, that’s not a joke. April really is stress awareness month and with the current Covid-19 situation please make sure that you’re looking after yourselves and your loved ones. Stress weakens the immune system, so make sure you take time out to relax and unwind in whatever way helps you to manage.
2nd April – International Children’s Book Day
Write one or read one, the choice is yours.
4th April – Discover National Parks Fortnight
With more and more countries going on lockdown this is the perfect opportunity to explore the amazing national parks we have right here in the UK. Not only that, but every trip taken in the UK helps to support our local tourism trade and independent businesses.
6th April – Community Garden Week
Get your hands dirty and either start a community garden or volunteer at one in your local area. Being in nature is a massive mood booster and community gardens are great for the local environment and helping to support our wildlife.
7th April – World Health Day
The day that marks the anniversary of the World Health Organisation (WHO) which was founded in 1948.
10th April – Good Friday
Enjoy the Bank Holiday by getting those crossed buns, hot and slathering them in butter.
12th April – Easter Sunday
15th April – Micro-Volunteering Day
A day to raise awareness about the big impact that small amounts of volunteering can have. You don’t have to commit lots of time on a regular basis to make a difference. Just an hour of your time can deliver great things.
18th April – English Tourism Week
There is more on our doorsteps than we realise. Ditch the planes and discover the beautiful, exciting and varied holidays you can have right here.
19th April – International Dark Sky Week
Started in 2003, this initiative has grown and grown every year with more and more people, villages, towns and cities worldwide taking part. Switch off your lights, ask your local community to do the same and then enjoy the magic of the stars without the light pollution getting in your way.
20th April – National Stationery Week
Who doesn’t love a crisp, fresh notebook and a freshly sharpened pencil?
21st April – National Tea Day
English breakfast, Eary and Lady Grey, peppermint, chai, chamomile, green, fruit infusions and more. The world of tea is rich and varied, and we say amen to that!
22nd April – Earth Day
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. This years theme is climate action. So we ask you, what action can you take on the 22nd of April on onwards to tackle the challenge of climate change?
23rd April – English and Spanish Language Day, Plus World Book Night
Combine the two and read a book in English or Spanish, day done.
24th April – Fashion Revolution Day
A day that calls for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion supply chain.
25th April – World Penguin Day
Did you know that Penguins have knees? No? We didn’t either.
27th April – National Gardening Week
Can you make your garden more wildlife-friendly this year? There are some really easy things you can do. Such as planting pretty flowers that are great for pollinators, adding a water feature, a bird feeder or house, a bug hotel, leaving a patch of grass to grow wild, cutting a small hole at the bottom of your fence to allow access for hedgehogs – who by the way LOVE to eat slugs and snails. Or, do you have space for a tree? Any extra thing you can do in your garden will be of huge value to our wildlife.
28th April – World Day for Safety & Health at Work
Review your H&S protocols and make sure you’re keeping yourself and your employees safe.
29th April – International Dance Day
Every night is kitchen disco night in the Kakadu household. Those onions don’t get chopped without a little bop.
We hope this post has given you a few lightbulb moments and given you lots of inspiration for your next social media and marketing campaigns.
