These are extraordinary times that have brought the world to a standstill. We still have a way to go, but if we support each other the results could be great.

We want to give #essentialthanks to all those keeping the country ticking, from hospital staff to supermarket workers, truck drivers to teachers, or your local café's staff for the awesome flat white.

But it does not stop there, it could be a beautiful sunset, your dog, or a shout-out to show your support to local businesses as they restart.

Let your community know who or what has helped you get through. Post your photos of thanks at the bottom of the page and let’s show our locals some love.

Give #essentialthanks to anyone or anything getting you through.

Give thanks
