Help the heroes

Buy a copy of our special May cover and help raise funds for the NHS Charities Covid-19 urgent appeal.

We wanted to feature as many faces as we could from across the county in a show of solidarity and togetherness.

We have made a limited number of posters available for just £10. All proceeds will go to the NHS Charities crowdfunder supporting NHS staff and volunteers during this difficult time.

Those donations help to fund wellbeing packs (such as food deliveries, snacks, refreshments and wash kits), the cost of travel, parking and accommodation for staff and volunteers, as well as other items requested by NHS charities. Buy your copy of the cover at
