Watch as celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver pays tribute to staff at Addenbrooke’s Hospital
Jamie Oliver has paid tribute to staff at Addenbrooke's Hospital in an emotional video.
The celebrity chef, who is from nearby Clavering, has shared the message of support to the local hospital that he has used down the years, including for microsurgery to a nerve in his hand.
Standing in front of a Big Love background, Jamie says: "We've always been grateful to you guys locally, but now more than ever with COVID-19, I mean, what can be said? The true heroes, the true superheroes!”
“Me and my family are so grateful just to have you there … we know that you’ve been looking after our community like your own family, so thank you for putting them first, thank you for risking your own lives ... I just want to say thank you."
He also thanks the Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust for all their work in raising money for the hospital.
And he concludes by adding: “Good luck with everything. Good luck with all the fundraising and keep doing what you’re doing."
