ULHT uploaded a photo of some of its staff and the first delivery on Monday, saying: “We cannot thank you enough for the generosity shown to our staff. This is the first delivery following our appeal for donations to our Amazon staff wishlist.

“This will go such a long way to help support our staff at this difficult time – thank you!”

ULHT advised that people should select ‘Lincoln Central stores’ before checkout when making the purchase to make sure the donation reaches them.

The donations will be shared across all three hospitals at the trust, which has more than 8,000 staff – Lincoln, Boston and Grantham.

There was a chorus of a applause heard on every street in Lincolnshire last Thursday, with people young and old showing support for NHS frontline staff and other key workers who are helping to keep the country going.
