Dear news reporters,

I was hoping you may be able to put a massive 'thank you' in your paper to all the retail staff that put themselves at risk of Covid-19 every day to make sure we have enough food – and to say how proud we are of them.

My son is an under-manager at the Rose Hill Co-op in Oxford and he has said it is a very stressful time for us all and, while the majority of their customers are respectful to the staff, some are not quite so.

I would also like to say how proud we all are of the NHS and carers out in the community and in their care homes (thank you).

I would also like to thank you all at the Oxford Mail for your work to keep the news coming out to us.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Judy Cross
