National charity HELP Appeal, which helped fund the helicopter landing pad at Ipswich Hospital, has produced the posters in the hopes of channelling spirits of the public.

They include icons such as Rosie the Riveter, and a First World War Earl Kitchener-inspired poster of an NHS frontline worker.

Robert Bertram, chief executive of the HELP Appeal, said: We hope to channel the indomitable spirit of the British people during WWII, the inspirational speeches of Winston Churchill and iconic wartime icons such as Rosie the Riveter, to encourage people in the battle against coronavirus.

"Everyone needs to batten down the hatches for a bit longer to help protect their local hospital and save lives.”

The HELP Appeal hope the posters will ignite a spirit of unity during the pandemic
