Information

This fabulous banner was made by radiographers at Aintree Hospital. They proudly waved it during the Thursday night Clap for Carers in April, 2020. It sums up aspects of Coivd-19 lockdown pandemic life including Captain Tom’s fundraising efforts and Chanel the escaped African grey parrot with her owner, Sandra who became the subject of viral internet memes and were interviewed on ITV’s This Morning! “It shows our appreciation for all the people and businesses who have helped NHS shift workers; from schools making us visors, having protected shopping times for shift workers, free travel and even receiving free meals has raised our morale during this difficult pandemic. All help was appreciated, reminding us of why we work in healthcare; the whole nation pulled together when we needed it most. Thank you." Tee Kaur, one of the designers of the banner.
