Staff at a Kettering nursery have thanked NHS heroes with an array of hampers such as fruit baskets.

Practitioners at Windermere Day Nursery created the hampers for keyworker parents and their "heroic" frontline colleagues who are working tirelessly to help coronavirus patients.

At the nursery, on the KGH site and rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted, there are a total of 28 keyworker parents so staff decided to create gifts for them which could then be shared at work.

Windermere Day Nursery manager Amy McCulloch said: “We have a large number of keyworker parents at Windermere, both old and new, so get to see first-hand the pressures they are currently under.

"We really wanted to show our thanks during this difficult time and let them how grateful we are for all their hard work.

"We have received a lovely letter of thanks from the hospital and it’s brilliant to know we have made a positive impact.”
