The overwhelming gratitude we all feel for our brave NHS heroes and other key workers is reflected in the thunderous applause 
which resonates throughout 
local communities every 
Thursday night at 8pm.

It is also seen in the lockdown charity fundraisers, the rainbow trails through streets, and the messages of support which fill pages of social media sites.

We asked for you to send us your personal ‘thank you’ photographs to the NHS staff and we want it to continue.

Send us your NHS thank yous as landscape video clips or photo messages, together with full details of who is featured. We would also need them to include your name and location with the email.
