"You could be a nurse or doctor, or you may have just been looking after someone's pet," Mr Schooling said.

"We thought with this pandemic and so much negativity going on in the world, we thought we could give something for people to aim for and reward them for their outstanding efforts."

Linking Hands is a self-supported charity which offers a range of free services including bereavement counselling, alcohol and drug rehab, as well as cancer support.
