Cards for carers – every little helps

I have been lucky enough to isolate at home with symptoms but for those who ended up in hospital, I’m sure they are as grateful as I am to still be here.

So these cards are a great way to show our gratitude. They are the brainchild of Sue Lee from Pennychoo and reflect the way we feel about our NHS soldiers right now.

 “The NHS and care homes rely on people from all over the world and it was important that my illustration showed that,” says Sue. And if you’re stuck for what to say, the message inside reads ‘…for everthing you’re doing in the fight against Coronavirus. Your hard work and bravery will never be forgotten. Thank You!’

“But where to send them? Some will no doubt want to say thanks to specific staff who’ve helped them through illness but thankfully, most people won’t have been in hospital, so Sue’s idea is this. “Pick a hospital and send it to the ICU department – or the cleaners, or kitchen staff or the people on the front desk. How about a local GP surgery or pharmacy, or paramedics, or staff in a local care home? Every single person who keeps working is risking their life for us – they’re all heroes so let’s tell them.”

The cards costs £2.50 with 100% of profits going to NHS charities, Even better, self-isolating buyers can order to include the price of a first class stamp and Sue will write and post the card on their behalf. Whichever option people choose, though, this is a card that can only do some good and hopefully bring a smile to some exhausted faces.
