During the coronavirus crisis, many people have shown their respect for the NHS by clapping every Thursday from the doorstep.

But now you can get something more permanent.

Graphic designer Carl Godfrey, 27, has created a £4 pin badge with the slogan ‘NH-Yes’ in 2018 which he is now selling to help raise funds for the hard work key workers are doing.

Speaking to the Adver, he said: “We ran out of our first batch, which was 1,000 but then when this crisis started we figured we would start up again and see how much we could raise.

“It’s gone down well. Someone just ordered 100 from me today which is incredible.

“And it’s surprising how quickly it can take off on social media. It’s gone up and down the length of the country.

“It’s a bit like the clap. You can show your appreciation for what they do. This is another way of showing that appreciation.”

Carl originally wanted to create the pins and raise money after he spent considerable time in hospital in 2018 when he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease.

He added: “That year I was in and out of hospital a bit more than I would like to be and it was just a way of saying thank you and it coincided with the 70th anniversary."

Carl is living back with his parents in Lawn during the lockdown. Because of the Crohn's, he is in the at-risk category.

In normal circumstances he would live with his girlfriend Catie O’Donoghue who is a nurse working on the children’s Covid-19 ward in Bristol.

Carl added: “A big shout out to Catie, and to my parents who have been helping packing and sending out hundreds of badges. It is a family effort.”

Via website carlgodfrey.com/shop/nhyes, more than 1,700 badges have sold and raised £4,200.
