With summer seeming like a distant memory, we’re here to cheer you up with some more exciting opportunities in the wonderful world of Digital PR. So, sit back, relax, and let’s see what’s in store between the 4th to the 10th of October.
MONDAY THE 4th OF OCTOBER – 10th OF OCTOBER – THE 23RD ANNUAL NATIONAL CURRY WEEK 2021
Whether it’s a Tikka Masala, Korma or Vindaloo, the UK loves a good curry! And we’re in luck because next week we are graced with the 23rd Annual National Curry Week. This not only honours the nation’s favourite cuisine (and celebrates and supports the Indian restaurant industry), but also raises money for poverty focused charities.
For clients in the hospitality sector, you could look to reveal the UK’s hottest tongues by running a survey. Or go a little bigger by running a competition where the winner gets to taste test the nation’s best curries!
More information can be found on this event, here.
MONDAY THE 4TH OF OCTOBER – WORLD ANIMAL DAY, INTERNATIONAL
Second in our round up is the very important World Animal Day. Started by Heinrich Zimmermann in 1925, the mission of this day is creating awareness and raising the status of animals to improve welfare standards worldwide. Celebrated differently in each country, the day seeks to educate and make the world safer for all animals.
It’s not breaking news that animal stories do well in the world of Digital PR, so this day not only gives you a good hook but also offers an amazing opportunity to spread the word and generate awareness.

So, whether you build a poetry competition or just reveal the cheesiest poems of all time, there are many different avenues you can explore. For more information on how you can get involved, you can visit the site here.
SUNDAY THE 10TH OF OCTOBER – WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY, INTERNATIONAL
Going into its 29th year, World Mental Health Day is an international day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma.
Being such an incredibly important topic, the build up to Sunday the 10th would be the perfect time to release any data or tips surrounding the conversation of mental health. So, whether you speak to wellness experts on the importance of wellbeing, or promote top tips on how to unwind at home or in the workplace, helpful content like this would certainly be invaluable.
