Thank You Thursday: Hooray for our heroes

‘NHS and care home workers are doing something truly incredible and it’s been great to see everyone out on their doorsteps applauding them every Thursday evening. When I go out, I also spare a thought for some other people whose efforts sometimes go unappreciated — our bin men. It’s a tough job and often dirty work but, without their graft and hard work, we’d be in a real mess. Literally. I’d really like to thank Britain’s refuse collectors for everything they’re doing to stop an already terrible situation getting worse for us all. Their work is vital for public health and they don’t often get the credit they deserve’ — Andy Abraham, singer

‘Our key workers are going above and beyond to keep this country going through this difficult time and I take my hat off to every single one of them. Also, much respect to all the teachers out there. I’ve been a teacher to my kids for just two months now and I’ve had enough already! #staysafe x’ — Sam Bailey, singer

‘An enormous thank you to every single NHS worker. You are saving thousands of lives right now. You’re all doing so well. We wouldn’t be here without you guys’ — Gemma Atkinson, actor

‘Thank you doesn’t seem quite enough on this occasion, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you to the NHS, the doctors, nurses, cleaners, paramedics, porters, the list goes on. The bus drivers, cleaners, delivery drivers, shop workers. Absolutely everyone who is contributing to helping the nation. You’re the champions!’ — Johnny Nelson, Sky Sports commentator

‘A massive thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that the NHS and key workers have done and are continuing to do. We are incredibly grateful for the huge sacrifice you and your families are all making. We are so proud of our NHS and we are determined that you should be kept on the pedestal you have always deserved to be on long after this is all over.’ Ali Bastian, actor
