Victoria Beckham shows her appreciation for NHS workers with a gentle FaceTime call


The Beckhams shared regular updates on their isolation as a family of five – just the eldest son Brooklyn, who is lost in America with his girlfriend Nicola Peltz.

From transforming movie nights into a home business to publishing David’s latest culinary adventures, they also expressed appreciation for NHS workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic in the UK.

Over the weekend, Victoria spoke to two NHS teams via FaceTime, thanking them for their hard work and encouraging them to share their stories and advice with more than 28 million followers.

To get her message across, Victoria posted excerpts from her conversations on her Instagram page.

“Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak to 2 NHS teams in different parts of the UK,” wrote the 45-year-old fashion designer. “I published parts of the conversation on IGTV. Please watch and listen to what they say. They are so inspiring and we all have to do our part to stay home and help these incredible workers and their frontline colleagues. “

In the first clip Victoria shared, she asked a group of NHS workers what message they would most like to send to the community.

“Please stay at home,” said one worker, “Stay at home so we can go to work to do the work that we do, that we love.”

In a longer video with an NHS team in Scotland, Victoria took a moment to express her thanks before asking the group how they were doing.

“I hope you feel the love the whole country gives you. The applause – every time I watch everyone’s videos applaud, I am very moved. I hope you can feel that from all of us, “she said.

“It’s a very small community here, and everyone has been incredibly supportive,” said one member. “Many of us had to move from our homes, hundreds of miles from our family, in order to be isolated from them. And people have offered housing for free, they give us meals while we work at the hospital, so it was amazing. “

Despite the positive outlook from the NHS team, when Victoria asked about their shifts, it was clear that they had worked overtime.

“We all do 12½ hour shifts every day,” said one, adding that it differs from hospital to hospital.

“Many of us have not seen our family for ages, some people have not seen their partners and children just so that we can try to keep them safe,” they added.

“Thanks again so much for all your hard work – everything you do,” said Victoria at the end of their call. “I don’t even know what to say, I really feel very humble to speak to you, and thank you from the bottom of my heart. “

Since opening their own isolation routine on March 19, Victoria and David have used their tracked social media to encourage their subscribers to do the same and support the NHS in every way possible.

Early on, David shared the resources of UNICEF and WHO to protect you from COVID-19, and the whole Beckham family joined the Clap for our Carers campaign to thank the NHS.

David even participated in a celebrity-filled tribute that included Elton John, Paul McCartney and Stormzy sharing their thanks to the NHS in a video compilation.
