THE children of NHS workers on the front-line of the cornonavirus pandemic are pleading with the public to stay home and save lives.

Staff working for St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust have enlisted their kids to help them share the important ‘stay at home’ message this Easter bank holiday weekend.

In a bid to reach as many people as possible, videos featuring the children, filmed on phones at home, are being shared on the trust’s social media channels over the next four days.

Launching the series are sisters Serena, 7, and Elyssia Mayor, 2, whose mum Shelley is a nurse at Whiston Hospital.

Cheeky chappies Oscar, 10, and Harry Thompson, 5, sons of the trust’s head of communications Kim Hughes, also recorded a hilarious and important message.
