Entitled Gratitude, the 51 sculptures have been created by a number of artists and are accompanied by real-life audio stories, recorded by famous voices, about key workers.

The free exhibition opens in Birmingham next month.

It is then due to move on to Manchester, Edinburgh and London.

The sculptures will be auctioned off at a later date, with "substantial proceeds" going to NHS Charities Together.

They have been designed by artists and designers including Pam Hogg, Andrew Logan, Kitty Joseph, Kate Malone and the project's creative ambassador, Dame Zandra Rhodes.

Artist Mr A Singh said his sculpture, entitled Community Strength, was dedicated to voluntary key workers from diverse backgrounds.

Absolute nonsense, West Yorkshire NHS has had medals struck to be given out just for doing their jobs, they waste money because they can and anyone who questions it are heretics, blasphemers.
  The death toll from other serious illnesses neglected by them is not even started to be realised,
  5m+ waiting for ops, doesn't look good, people not being able to see their doctor, as I've said before, the NHS don't emerge from this.  :-\

And these sculptures are intended as a tribute to the very same healthcare workers they are now firing en-mass for refusing to submit to chemical r a p e, I take it? Perhaps they can collect their poxy medals when they arrive to pick up their P45s?


Meanwhile, a substantial section of The Great British Public continue to clap like monkeys while it all takes place in front of them………
