David Beckham has recorded a special message for NHS workers in Greater Manchester.
The Manchester United legend popped up on the Northern Care Alliance's Twitter feed to send his best wishes on Thursday night.
In the clip Becks said: "You are all doing an amazing job and I just wanted to send a special shout out to all the kids whose mums, dads and wider families are working so hard across hospitals and communities in Greater Manchester during this time.
"Carry on supporting each other, stay safe, stay well.”
The Northern Care Alliance is the umbrella NHS organisation for Salford Royal, North Mannchester General, Fairfield Hospital, Rochdale Infirmary and the Royal Oldham Hospital.
Raj Jain, chief executive of the Northern Care Alliance, has written a letter to the children of staff members to thank them for the support they are giving to their parents and loved ones.
Raj said: "Our staff members are giving their all right now. So many of our teams are working long, physically and emotionally challenging shifts or longer working days and weeks to ensure we can face the biggest challenge that has ever been presented to the NHS.
"I am in awe of their dedication, commitment and bravery at this time.
"Of course our staff members are not just part of the NCA family, they have their own families and we don’t underestimate the tremendous impact this is having on home lives at the moment.
"We are incredibly grateful to all the families of our staff members because we know they wouldn’t be able to come in and show this level of commitment and dedication without the support, love, patience and understanding of their loved ones at home.
"We wanted in particular to thank their children. Some of our staff members’ kids are not in school at the moment and are adjusting to a life of social distancing.
"However for many other children whose mums, dads or carers are NHS staff they may still be in their school or a different school. No matter the circumstances, it’s a very unusual time for our younger generation."
“To show our appreciation we have sent a letter of thanks to these children and young people because we wanted to make clear to them that they are very much part of the NCA team.”
