{{Quotation|
{{Quotation|When we started off with this exercise we didn't anticipate we'd get anything near that sort of money. It's really amazing. All of them, from top to bottom, in the National Health Service, they deserve everything that we can possibly put in their place. They're all so brave. Because every morning or every night they're putting themselves into harm's way, and I think you've got to give them full marks for that effort. We're a little bit like having a war at the moment. But the doctors and the nurses, they're all on the front line, and all of us behind, we've got to supply them and keep them going with everything that they need, so that they can do their jobs even better than they're doing now.|トーマス・ムーア|BBC}}
私がこの運動を始めたとき、こんなにもたくさんのお金がいただけるとは思いもしませんでした。実に驚くべきことです。NHSの皆さん全てが、私たちが彼らの代わりができるあらゆるものの価値に値します。彼らは皆たいへん勇敢です。毎朝あるいは毎晩、自らを危険にさらしているのですから、そして私は彼らの努力に対して完全な形で評価を差し上げないといけないと思うんです。いま私たちは戦争をしているようなものです。しかし医師や看護師は前線にいて、私たち全員はその後方にいる。私たちは彼らが必要とするものを調達して、上手くいくようにしなければいけないのです。彼らがいましている以上にその職務を果たせるようにするために。
