A COMMUNITY-SPIRITED Halesowen youngster has sent a message of support to medics on the frontline of the fight against Covid-19.

Theo Hubbard has created a rainbow with a 'stay at home' message on the driveway of his home in Chapel House Lane.

The artistic 11-year-old Windsor High pupil drew the giant rainbow - backing the government's warning for people to stay at home to avoid the spread of coronavirus - with chalk.

His mum Helen Hubbard, who is working as a nurse, said: "Theo wanted to show his support for the nurses, doctors and all medical staff who he knows are working tirelessly to help their patients.

"I'm a nurse at Mary Steven's Hospice in Stourbridge so we talk about the importance of staying safe and following the government guidelines that are forever being updated.

"I’m so proud of him and his maturity to this whole situation."

Fifty-year-old Helen, who is married, is also mum to Hazel, aged 31 and Amelia, aged 15, who has just finished her studies at Windsor High.

The government is urging people to stay at home to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

It is telling people to only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if they can't work from home) and if people do go out they should stay two metres (6ft) away from other people at all times and wash their hands as soon as they get home.

It is warning people they can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
