Vodafone offers free data to connect with loved ones this Celebration Day

Vodafone is encouraging customers to connect with friends, family and loved ones on Sunday 26 June with 24 hours of free unlimited data, in support of the UK’s first ever ‘Celebration Day’.

‘Celebration Day’ on Sunday 26 June will be a day to pause, reflect, remember and celebrate the loved ones who are no longer with us – whether they’re family, friends or someone who has had a positive impact on our lives.

In support of the special day, Vodafone will automatically gift free UK unlimited data to all customers currently on a consumer Pay As You Go, Pay Monthly or VOXI plan.

Celebrities such as Stephen Fry, Richard E Grant, Prue Leith, Lennie James, Anya Hindmarch, Helena Bonham Carter, Jamie Oliver, Gemma Arterton, Harriet Walter and River Medway will also lend their support to the day, with some posting their own stories of how they’ll remember and celebrate their loved ones.

Max Taylor, Consumer Director at Vodafone UK, said: “Taking time out of our busy lives to remember and celebrate those who are no longer with us is really important, especially after what has been an incredibly challenging two years.

“Celebration Day is the perfect opportunity for people to connect with loved ones to celebrate those who they have lost and we’re happy to be able to make that connection easier for our customers.”

Celebration Day key visual

Celebration Day will be an annual event and is about celebrating life and love, and legacies that are positive, inspiring and enriching. Participants are encouraged to share their own stories on whose life they’ll celebrate, how and why, by uploading their videos and images to their own social media channels using #CelebrationDay.

People can remember their loved one in whatever way that they wish. For some, sharing thoughts and memories of that special person, either in person or over the phone or video call will be the best form of celebration, for others it could be by going on their person’s favourite walk, cooking their favourite meal, visiting a place that was special to them or just sharing their story online.
