It is to say thanks for the sacrifice and commitment shown by the workers during these difficult, uncertain times because of COVID-19.

All NHS and social care staff across the country have been heroes during this pandemic and the Doughboys Co-Chairman Mark Darnell said: “We feel it’s the least we can do to reward in some way the dedication shown by our health service and social care workers – the work they have been doing is tremendous.

“We will also be looking at other ways of rewarding NHS and care staff at the local hospital in the days and weeks to come.

And it’s the selflessness which has most impressed the co-chairman.

He added: “They are putting themselves at risk (to the virus), and not just because it’s their job, but because they seriously care about looking after those in need.

“Keep up the good work NHS and all social care staff, this country is proud of you!”
