CHILDREN’S author and illustrator Charlie Mackesy has designed this heart-warming card as a thank you to those who helped us through the Covid crisis.
It features characters from his bestselling book The Boy, The Mole, The Fox And The Horse and is just the thing to show love to those we cherish, from friends and family to neighbours and key workers.

He has designed it to mark National Thank You Day, on Sunday July 4.
Pupils up and down the country will be hard at work in the coming weeks making thank-you posters to go on public display with Charlie’s national card.
He said: “The pandemic has been hard for so many. One of the few positives is it has brought communities closer.
“I hope Thank You Day provides a chance to get together and thank those who have made the pandemic bearable.”
Its backers include the Together Coalition, Royal Voluntary Service and Football Association, as well as the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and celebrities including Dame Judi Dench and Gary Lineker.
The Sun is asking readers to join in the celebration and thank all YOUR heroes of the past 14 months.

“One thing they talk of is who they are thankful to for getting them through the last year and a bit — teachers and support staff, governors and trustees, their own families and of course the children and young people who have put up with huge pain and anxiety.”
Jonathan Douglas, head of the National Literacy Trust, added: “This card of thanks is a national expression of something that so many of us have been busting to say.”
