    8 April 2020

    Two-time Wimbledon and gold Olympic medal winner, Sir Andy, has recorded a message for staff at Addenbrooke’s Hospital to thank them for everything they are doing through the coronavirus outbreak.

    He said: “This is obviously an extremely difficult time for everyone but none more so than for the healthcare workers, so I just wanted to say a big thanks for all of your hard work, dedication and the sacrifices that you’re making at this time for all of us.”

    Having recently visited Addenbrooke’s for a scan before the coronavirus outbreak, Sir Andy said: “Everyone there was fantastic and extremely helpful. I have made a donation to the charity to say thank you very much for everything that you’re doing.”

    Shelly Thake, Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust’s (ACT) CEO, said: “Like Sir Andy, we are in awe of the Addenbrooke’s staff who are fighting every day to save patients in impossible circumstances. I’d like to thank him very much on behalf of our NHS heroes for his kind donation to our ‘Help your hospital’ appeal, which will provide staff with the vital equipment and support they need to continue to save patients’ lives.”

    Sir Andy’s message can be heard on ACT’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/act4addenbrookes
