“…I want to express once again, my profound appreciation to you all for continuing to work so incredibly hard in every corner of this land.”

“So many unsung heroes”
“There are so many unsung heroes and heroines working for the role of delivering COVID tests to home addresses and safely collecting the completed kids from a network of 35,000 priority postboxes, seven days a week,” he continued.
The service you provide makes such a difference to so many people.
“For what it is worth, I can only offer you my greatest possible thanks once again for what every single one of you continues to do day in and day out during these long days of lockdown.
“The service you provide makes such a difference to so many people, and we would truly be lost without you.”
