Show some love for key workers this Valentine’s day

“Show some love to key workers this Valentine’s Day” says Buckinghamshire Council and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, as they ask residents to fill the county with love, by placing a heart in their windows from today (Monday 1st February) through to Valentine’s day on Sunday 14th February.

People in Buckinghamshire are being invited to take part to thank all our key workers for the incredible commitment and sacrifice they have made for us every day, throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.  

To take part simply draw or decorate some hearts and place them in your window for the world to see. The council would love to see them too, so please do share on social media using the hashtag #ShowSomeLove to spread your thanks online.

Cllr Martin Tett, Leader of Buckinghamshire Council, said: “I know just how amazing all our key workers have been during this pandemic and it would be great if all of us could get behind this campaign to show our appreciation. Displaying a heart in your window is simple and really meaningful and continues to show our key workers we appreciate them. Let’s do this together.”

Neil Macdonald, Chief Executive at Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, said: “Every day I can see just how big a sacrifice our healthcare staff are having to make to care for those who are very ill with COVID-19.  If everyone gets behind this campaign, I think it will be a great way to recognise and appreciate them along with all our other keyworker heroes, who have worked tirelessly since last March.”
