“I Feel like I owe my life to the health service, it’s my way of sayingthank you”
Amidst these most troubling times of the long and distinguished history of our National Health Service, none has posed such a systematic threat like the coronavirus.
With all the statistics of people contracting or sadly dying from the virus, it’s easy to forget the brave heroes who are saving lives, including doctors and nurses of our beloved NHS.
A musician from Northampton felt compelled to repay and show his gratitude to the NHS. Brenden Read-Jones wrote and teamed up with a London-based music producer, to produce a song in support of the health service.
The song, called Our Blue Army, is being used to raise money in order to help doctors and nurses. Mr Read-Jones is asthmatic which he developed in the 1950`s and has had multiple asthma attacks, but with the help of the brave men and women of the NHS he is able to now live a normal life at 71 years of age.
“Without the care and dedication of the NHS I may not be here today, and I feel like I owe my life to the health service. Our nurses and doctors are giving everything to help save as many people as they can, I felt compelled to try to raise money for them, it’s my way of saying thank you to them”.
