The campaign also reaches past the UK and will treat other healthcare workers around Europe and the Middle East to free holidays on the island. Around 400 guests in total will be accommodated over the course of the campaign until the end of summer.

So far, 6,800 complimentary nights have been gifted to the charitable organisation. A crowdfunder has been launched to bring in more funds for the scheme.

Director of Tourism at the Consell d' Eivissa, Juan Miguel Costa, said on the initiative: “This shows unity and why Ibiza people and businesses care deeply about what has happened over the last 18 months.”

Fatboy Slim - who has been at the forefront of many charitable initiatives similar over the years - commented, “Ibiza has always been a special place to me, I am thrilled to support this project and the healthcare heroes who deserve this break.”
