Organisers Destination MK are asking all Twitter users to use the hashtag LoveMK on all their tweets on the day, Thursday May 2.

Marketing manager Carys Underwood said: “We are encouraging people across MK to do random acts of kindness’ on the day.

“This doesn’t have to be anything huge - you could bake a cake for work colleagues, mow your neighbour’s lawn or buy the person behind you in the Starbucks queue a coffee.”

She added: “Every year the MK social media community really gets behind #LoveMK Day and this year’s theme aims to harness that support and make it really tangible. Why not get involved and help spread the love?”

Carys said: “You can download the #LoveMK Day poster from the website and get your photo taken to show your support. Tweet it to @DestinationMK and we’ll retweet and add it to our Facebook gallery."

On the day you can follow @DestinationMK for a chance to win prizes as they run 12 competitions in 12 hours. You can win just by using the hashtag.
