#Shine4thefrontline - Saturday, 18 April from 8:00pm
With greater isolation rules in place throughout the North West to reduce the spread of coronavirus and the associated heightened anxiety, now is the time to show your appreciation to all frontline workers that continue to keep everything running, from the obvious to the “invisible” - those in the health profession, aged and disability sector, cleaners, pharmacists, emergency services, supermarkets, butchers, food take-away, service/petrol stations, bakeries, laundromats and dry cleaners, newsagents, rural services, food processing, general stores, bottle shops, IT repairs, car repairs, transport operators, veterinary services, animal and pet food supplies, banks, hardware supply stores, councils, waste management, manufacturing and educators - who don’t have the option to self-isolate and are constantly in contact with others, placing themselves at higher risk.
This is your opportunity to break out your Christmas lights, light a candle, wave torches or shoot a spotlight into the air from your property from this Saturday at 8:00pm and into the future to say “thank you”.
Such a simple action will show your support and demonstrate to frontline workers that you appreciate them turning up, working hard and giving the community hope in such an extraordinary time.
