Jamie Oliver gives ‘big love’ to Addenbrooke’s in heartfelt video message

23 June 2020

Celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver has recorded an emotional video message paying tribute to all the staff at his local hospital, Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge.

Standing in front of a background which says, “Big Love”, Jamie recalls having to use Addenbrooke’s over the years including microsurgery to a nerve in his hand. 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.”

Jamie also thanks the hospital’s charity, Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, for the hard work they are putting into raising money for the hospital saying, “…Good luck with everything. Good luck with all the fundraising and keep doing what you’re doing.”
