On Saturday while they were stuck at home Miraya Pindoria, 6 and her big sister Vinaya Pindoria, 8, decided to say thanks to the staff at King George Hospital, which is down the road from their house, and sent sandwiches, a hand-written card and a care package to the NHS staff there.

The girls enjoyed making lunch so much that they decided they’re going to do it every single weekend as long as they’re stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Vinaya said: “We wanted to make sandwiches for them because they’ve been caring for us, so we want to care for them.”

She will be celebrating her ninth birthday next week and her parents are planning a virtual party on Zoom so family and friends can wish her happy birthday from afar.
