Your Covid-19 messages and tributes

Send your tributes

Covid-19 has changed the world in ways that none of us could have imagined. The coronavirus and the lockdown it necessitated have caused tragedy, but have also prompted our communities to pull together in new and inspiring ways.

This page is our tribute to those who carried on bravely: those working on the front line, raising money for charity and helping their friends, relatives and neighbours; and, of course, those loved ones we have lost.

If you know someone who you want to thank, praise, remember or pay tribute to, we would be honoured if you were to leave your messages, poems, stories and artwork here.

A light will always be flickering for those we have lost too soon, we would not grieve if we did not love along with the thanks of a grateful nation to all those who like many generations before us answered their country’s call and served with honour and distinction.
