Our special thoughts go to the family and colleagues of the Police Officer who sadly lost their life in the line of duty. It goes without saying that we praise and commend their bravery and the ultimate sacrifice they made trying to protect others.

“To our hardworking doctors, nurses and medical staff, our brave police officers and those who helped just because they were there – our thanks and gratitude to you all. You demonstrate the values we as a nation should pride ourselves with.
