National Memorial for Covid Victims

As a child of the early 1960's I grew up listening to tales of heroism and bravery of those who fought in the Battle of Britain. People who were prepared to put their own lives on the line to protect our people and country. At the end of the war, memorials were erected and every year we go to them to remember them and to pay our respects.
 
Today we face a very different crisis, Covid-19 and a new breed of hero has emerged. Our doctors, nurses, carers and all staff in the NHS who bravely go into work each day, knowing they are potentially endangering their own lives. Often they are forced to treat Covid patients with inadequate PPE. They work in horrendous conditions for long hours with the utmost care for their patients. Tragically many of them have paid the ultimate sacrifice and died from this dreadful virus. 

They could have stayed at home, but they chose instead to put themselves willingly on the front line to care for and protect our loved ones.

We are still in the middle of this awful crisis and sadly many more will die yet. I do not want them to be forgotten. I want the country to erect a fitting, national memorial to all those who died from the virus in the line of duty. A place where all affected families can go to grieve and to feel ultimate pride in the sacrifice that their loved ones made. Please join me in raising the funds so that when this is all over we can erect a memorial to make our heroes proud.
