In these times of crisis, we realize that it is the healthcare workers that are real heroes. While we can afford to be in the comfort of our houses, the doctors, nurses, and pharmacists are working day in and out to save lives.
And any amount of gratitude towards these heroes is not enough.
Jack Pantall, a farmer from Staunton on Wye in Herefordshire in the United Kingdom, paid tribute to the National Health Service (NHS) in a very special manner.
Pantall mowed the letters NHS and a huge rainbow in his field with the help of his tractor. According to various reports, the sign is 60 metres tall and 152 metres wide!
The 33-year-old Pantall was inspired to create this heartwarming sign by his brother and sister-in-law, who work for the NHS.
Shortly after ploughing the sign in the ground, he set up his own fundraising page of Just Giving to help raise funds to support the Association of NHS charities.
Remarkably, ploughing this sign took a mere 16 minutes for Pantall, whose entire act was captured by a drone. Pantall also used the help of a drone connected to his phone to map out this entire image.
“We’ve got a few nurses and doctors as friends, my brother Harry is a paramedic and his wife is a doctor. That’s part of why we’re showing our appreciation,” he said.
“We’ve got various friends who live next to us who are all nurses, resuscitation nurses, so they are in the mix of it. It’s a small contribution and they were ecstatic over it.”
“It really makes you feel good when they know there are people out there appreciating them. You never know someone is appreciating you until someone says.”
Isn’t this a heartwarming tribute to healthcare workers who are working tirelessly to ensure that all of us are healthy? What do you think? Do let us know your views in the comments section below.
