Work gets underway on lasting tribute to Buckinghamshire’s community spirit

Work has begun on the construction of Nightingale’s Rainbow – a new sculptural installation at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury – which will stand to pay tribute to the thousands of acts of kindness, courage and determination shown by people  & organisations across Buckinghamshire during the pandemic and will be a permanent symbol of hope in the face of adversity.

Each of the thousands of Rainbow Tiles which will decorate the structure can be purchased and dedicated to individuals and groups who have played their part in the response to the Covid-19 crisis.

Everyone who purchases a Rainbow Tile can leave their own personal message of thanks and gratitude on the Virtual Nightingale’s Rainbow  and shared on public displays across Buckinghamshire later in the year.

Each Rainbow Tile costs £20, with the proceeds split between Buckinghamshire NHS Charitable Fund and Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity to support nurses, other healthcare workers and patients across the county as we recover from the pandemic.

You can purchase a Rainbow Tile and leave your personal message of thanks and appreciation at
