Happy World Smile Day

5 Oct 2020
We all know that big trusty yellow smile, we use it everyday to send joy and happiness to our friends and family. And every year, on this day, we celebrate its infectious power as a symbol of happiness and good will, as intended by its creator, Harvey Ball in 1963. With that in mind, SpeedDater is taking this as an opportunity to discuss the importance of dating and meeting new people, especially now in the middle of a pandemic. Our Events Manager, Sarah Payne has taken our story to radio stations across the UK today and over the weekend, sharing how SpeedDater is here to help singles find joy in times of such uncertainty. With Coronavirus adding a further two meters between you and love, with all the restrictions, early closure of bars and the one household rule it almost seems impossible to create new friendships let alone relationships which ARE an important part of keeping your sanity during these unpredictable times. The pandemic has also highlighted the importance of Happy World Smile Day this year, with more and more of us stuck at home on our own the need to smile is greater, Sarah touches upon this and ways in which SpeedDater is here to help during her radio interviews.
