Commenting under his post, Hardy wrote: “Thank you to all of you taking unprecedented risk daily to take care of us. Thank you for your selfless care and tireless hard work on the frontline in this particularly difficult, risk full, deeply pressured and unprecedented time. Serving us daily so many of us, tirelessly underfunded, under pressure and deeply saddened to hear without the proper equipment you need.”

He continued: “All the services from Ambulance to Police to Fire. Military to Carers. Health care Volunteers and all support nationally. Thank you all. Thank you NHS. You are wonderful. I feel and I am not alone that we are incredibly lucky to have you. You are wonderful. And I am grateful for your service. Thank you.”

A new campaign was launches yesterday urging people to donate money to raise funds for frontline staff. You can visit the ‘Covid Front Line Fund’ Facebook page here.
