A Rhyl schoolgirl has thanked the “inspiring and brave” staff at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd for their work in fighting against the coronavirus.

The heartwarming letter sent by Rhyl High School pupil Grace was shared by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board on Twitter this morning.

The year 9 pupil said many of her family members were currently risking their lives working on the front line of the NHS, including her sister who is a paramedic in Cheshire.

She said it was “very important” that workers at the hospital in Bodelwyddan knew how much they were appreciated.

“I find all the staff very inspiring and brave,” said Grace. “I find it very inspiring that they are willing to put their lives at risk to fight for somebody else’s. Life would be extremely difficult without them.

“Their job must be very damaging on their physical and emotional health. This job may have a very big impact on their lives with the situations they deal with on a daily basis never knowing what’s going to happen, but they go in with confidence and bravery.

“I hope to help the NHS in the future in any way I can, whether that be working for them or just simply volunteering

“I think it is very warming that the nation is showing their appreciation by standing at their front doors clapping in honour of the amazing work their doing day in day out.

“I hope this letter finds you well and I want you and everyone working in the NHS to know how incredibly proud your family and the nation are of you, for everything you do.”

The health board said: “Our staff at Glan Clwyd Hospital were delighted to receive this heartfelt letter from Grace, a student at Rhyl High School.

“Your letter deserves to be shared far and wide Grace – thank you so much.”
