  4. The Pride of Wales – Celebrating #WelshHeroes Day

As we get ready to clap the heroic efforts of key workers and others across the country, we can give extra thanks and celebrate #WelshHeroes.

BBC Wales are spending the day (7th May) championing the people across Wales who have, and continue to, go the extra mile.

Whether as part of their work, or as a volunteer, the current crisis has shone a spotlight on the very best of human nature.

 

And Welsh sport has its fair share. 

The volunteers at Treharris RFC dishing out hundreds of meals at cost price for residents and keyworkers every week. An army of rugby club volunteers are arriving at the kitchen’s outdoor serving hatch to collect and deliver meals to doorsteps.

Wales lacrosse captain Dr Eleanor Gaastra, who has put her sporting ambitions to one side as the coronavirus pandemic forces the focus on to her day job in intensive care.

And Wales Rugby League captain Raf Taylor, a firefighter currently carrying two sets of protective equipment. One is for fighting fires, including breathing apparatus. The other is to protect against coronavirus.

And there are countless others making a huge contribution to current Welsh life.

Share your #WelshHeroes using the hashtah and sharing with @BBCWales @BBCRadioWales @BBCRadioCymru.
