2020 has been a tough year for everyone and it has been the strength and commitment of our key workers; in the NHS, social care, local government, public transport, our supermarkets and many more, that has got us this far.
The hard work is not over, as our health and care services face a challenging Christmas and New Year with increased demand on services and delivery of the Covid-19 vaccination.
As a small gesture of thanks, the people of Greater Manchester are being invited to take part in the #HatsOff4KeyWorkers campaign on social media.
To get involved, people can download and print one of the images in the links below, or simply use a hat of their own, and share their personal message of thanks using the hashtag #HatsOff4KeyWorkers.
Sarah Price, interim chief officer, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership said:
“This year has been difficult for us all, and while we have reached a turning point in our battle with the pandemic, there are still tough months ahead. The ongoing dedication and sacrifice of our key workers in Greater Manchester has been nothing short of remarkable.
“We will be forever indebted to those who have stepped forward and how we recognise their contribution once this is over is going to be really important. In the meantime, this campaign is a small gesture of thanks which everyone can get involved with – to take a moment and take their hats off in recognition of our key workers.
