The third annual Hidden Heroes Day is coming up on 29 September – and it’s a chance to celebrate those dedicated staff working in custodial and community justice settings across the UK.
Organised by the Butler Trust, the national day was first held in 2020 to hail the unsung heroes working in prisons, IRCs, probation and youth justice settings during the Covid pandemic. The aim of Hidden Heroes Day is to remind staff that although they may be working largely out of public view, their efforts are appreciated.
In the run-up to the day, people working in justice services are invited to join fundraising efforts for the associated Hidden Heroes Charity Challenge. These events can be anything from cake sales and raffles to sponsored walks, triathlons and sky dives. Last year, more than £69,000 was raised across the country in aid of Mental Health UK.
This year, people can choose which charity they’d like to support – but organisers are asking that fundraisers register online here: #HiddenHeroesCharityChallenge
Let’s get ready to celebrate all our unsung heroes now! See the website for more information: #HiddenHeroesDay
