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.
