ROBERTS has turned its Rudheath bakery blue to thank NHS workers for their continued efforts tackling coronavirus.

Designed to support the Clap for our Carers campaign, the newly-lit bakery will remain blue at night for the duration of the initiative.

Bakery workers at the family firm are also taking moments away from the production of bread to show their respect at 8pm every week.

Northwich Guardian:

The Clap for our Carers campaign has already provided a much-needed morale boost to the nation.

Communities across the country have been spotted clapping in their gardens, doorways and windows during a time of social distancing measures to show support for the estimated 1.3 million Britons who work for the NHS.

Northwich Guardian:

Hundreds and thousands of people have joined in over the last few weeks, and lighting its factory blue is just one way that Roberts can show its appreciation for the NHS.

Mike Roberts, deputy chairman of Roberts Bakery and fourth-generation member of the Roberts family, praised the move.

Northwich Guardian:

He said: “This is our way of showing our appreciation for NHS workers – all heroes – in difficult times for many people.

“The Clap for our Carers campaign has become a symbol of strength and unity in adversity.

“By lighting up the bakery, we can demonstrate our support and remind everyone to keep clapping.”
