Each year at our Burns Supper toasts to the Lassies and Lads are part of the tradition, this year Alex Feakes combined both toasts in this tribute to the NHS.
Raise a glass to toast the lads and lassies of our NHS:
The nurses and doctors, the porters and cleaners,
The admin staff and paramedics, who treat us.
Think kindly on those heroes in masks, who day and night
Toil on to mend us and tend us, in this time of the virus.
Raise a glass too for the researchers who with welcome speed
Found vaccines in this hour of our need.
Bonny lassies and lads all, we toast you with our good health.
