We are starting a non-profit-making initiative called 'Thank The NHS', whereby we are asking companies to pledge a gift / experience, large or small, for which NHS workers can then register, free of charge and potentially win in a lottery fashion.
We are in discussion with Everton to make a pledge, who are, as always, wonderful in anything to do with the community.
Hoping for the website to go live next week.
So I would like to ask my fellow Evertonians, who may have their own business or good business connections, if they can help in any way?
We've already got a Spa weekend at Ragdale Hall, £100 gift voucher for Bents, Screen printing course, Free Gym Membership, to name but a few.
If you would like to know more or discuss further, please contact me on:email@example.com

I absolutely agree with you – all those people you've listed, and more besides, deserve as much thanks. But if I could point out firstly, we are not asking for money for NHS staff. We are asking for nice gifts or experiences to say Thank You. We just wanted to say Thank You in unique ways to people who have put themselves at risk.
Plus, we would love someone to take up this initiative and offer similar to people from other walks of life. In fact, we would happily give them the domain name and any assistance to do so. However, it is beyond our technical ability to do that ourselves.
It has, in fact, been one huge struggle to get to the point we are at now, ie, website about to go live next week. It's taken many, many hours of unpaid work. The possibility of opening it up was in fact discussed and it was with regret that we just could not manage it.
But I agree with you – there are many unsung heroes and I hope they receive their reward as well.

The blanket praise of the NHS is very dangerous, akin to the sort of sycophantic, over-the-top nonsense lavished on American police forces for decades.
I worked in the NHS for years and it's a money pit, the waste and incompetence are eye-watering and go virtually unchallenged.
All of the saccharine platitudes raining on the heath service is nothing more than a diversionary tactic to take people's focus off the incompetence of government.
