TO mark the 75th anniversary of the NHS, Chard School Wyndham class chose to make some cards and posters to say thank you to some of the hardworking NHS staff.

The pupils delivered them to the pharmacy in Chard.

The children were very proud to have been able to share some of the ways that they or their families had been helped by the NHS.

In class they learnt about a few of the jobs that are in the NHS such as therapists, porters, engineers, cooks and midwives, as well as doctors, nurses, paramedics and healthcare assistants.

The pupils were even prouder of the NHS when they learnt that, on average, about one million people are helped by the NHS every single day across the UK.
