COVID-19 has caused panic, pain and depression in equal measure... but it’s also put our country’s true heroes in the spotlight.
The NHS staff working tirelessly on the frontlines. The supermarket workers feeding the nation. The neighbours delivering essential supplies to elderly and vulnerable people in their local area.
These people deserve praise shouted from the highest mountain tops. Everyone should know about their amazing work - and Hits Radio is offering you a chance to give them this recognition.
