"I, like everyone else, am looking on in awe at the way NHS staff are keeping going through this crisis day after day when every one of them is exhausted, overstretched and dealing with such hardship and sadness.

"This is a thank you to Calderdale and Huddersfield staff, to show how much you are appreciated. Bridget always likes to look on the bright side and I hope that the donation will go specifically towards giving the staff a treat.
