Local MP visits rainbow sculpture tribute at Florence Nightingale Hospice
Aylesbury MP Rob Butler has thanked local businesses and organisations for contributing to a rainbow sculpture dedicated to Buckinghamshire’s resilience in the face of Covid. Rob joined donors today to see progress of the construction at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
“Nightingale’s Rainbow is an imaginative tribute to the resilience and community spirit demonstrated by so many people in Buckinghamshire throughout the pandemic – whether on the frontline in the NHS, as key workers, or volunteering to help their neighbours.”
Construction of the main structure is now complete and the rainbow will be covered by more than 14,000 tiles which can be sponsored for £20 each. The tiles can be dedicated as a permanent thank you, with messages of tribute on the Florence Nightingale Hospice website: https://www.nightingalesrainbow.org.uk/
“Sponsoring a tile is a brilliant way for local people to participate in this unique commemoration of our community’s efforts and achievements during Covid. I’d like to thank the local firms and organisations who have paid for the structure of the rainbow, which means that every penny raised from the tiles can be donated to the Florence Nightingale Hospice and Buckinghamshire Healthcare Charitable Fund. I am sure that once complete, the rainbow will be a vivid and poignant landmark.”
