A new edition of Top Trumps, launching today, is honouring COVID-19 key workers.

Pest controllers will feature alongside doctors, nurses, sea merchants, journalists and partners of key workers in the new deck.

Claire Simon, global marketing manager at Top Trumps, said: “Every single frontline key worker is, of course, a heroine and hero and would each score 10 (or even 11) out of 10 by any reckoning if we had devised a hero category.

“By creating an Unsung Heroes category, we have ensured varying marks, in keeping with the game’s core classic and its unique and much-loved branding.”

“From our research, which has been intensively conducted over the six weeks, partners of key workers came out top in this section.”:”

Ian Andrew, chief executive of the British Pest Control Association, said: “We”ve been shouting about the essential nature of pest management since the beginning of the pandemic, however, it’s made us smile to see it recognised in this context.

“Thank you again to all the pest professionals that continue to protect people during the pandemic. “We hope you’re proud to appear in the Top Trumps deck alongside 29 other incredible professions.”

All net proceeds of the pack will be going directly to the NHS.
