More than ever we want to be able to send our appreciation to a front liner we love and adore. They work their bones, feet and hands off to deliver exceptional care, service and convenience for the general public. Carers, shop assistants, delivery people, teachers medical teams and everyone in-between. None have stopped yet and they continue to go on until we get out the other side.
The front liners care package includes chocolate & sweets, hemp hand cream, peppermint cooling and reviving foot spray, coffee or charcoal face mask and cotton moisture gloves.
I am a Frontliner (Nurse) and so is my Sister (Teacher). We both work long hours averaging around 12 hours a day.
Frontliners risk their lives every day to keep the country ticking over. The UK Government has defined ‘key workers’ or ‘Frontliners’ as those who are critical to the Covid-19 response or delivering essential public services within the UK, such as those who are at the frontline. These include…

Education and childcare: such as those in the social care sector, teachers, specialist education professionals.
Food and goods provisions: such as workers in the food production and distribution supply chain, as well as those in sales and delivery. This also includes those who work in the production of hygiene and medical goods.
Public safety and national security: such as the police, Ministry of Defence civilians, armed forces, fire service employees, security, prison and probation staff.
Transport: such as workers in the air, water, road and rail transport systems.
Utilities, communications and key financial services: such as workers needed for essential finance provisions, telecommunications, oil, gas or electricity suppliers, postal and delivery services, waste disposal and more.
Our faces are getting increasingly bad with spots, due in part to the increase in use of face masks. Our hands are dry, cut and damaged and our feet, well they just hurt. I do on average 12000 steps a day. Speaking to some of my fellow colleagues the Porters in the hospital do 20000+ steps every shift. We all just need a bit of TLC. Everyone will know someone who works on the Frontline. These people are our COVID 19 equivalent of war Veterans. Let us show them that we appreciate them.
