Seven-year-old Byron from Lancaster, who is a pupil at Westgate primary school, wanted to do something to show care and concern for the NHS.

His mother Laura Norman said: "Byron suffers severely with anxiety and also a form of trauma but after seeing all that the NHS are doing he told me he wanted to do something special for them.
