Worcestershire landmark to light up in celebration of local nurses
The Guildhall in Worcester will illuminate on Friday as part of International Nursing Day celebrations.
The iconic landmark will light up its exterior in blue, in recognition of the outstanding contribution of nurses who live, work or study in the county.
International Nurses Day is celebrated globally on the 12th of May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.
The Guildhall has joined up with Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, the main providers of mental health and community nursing services within the county who have launched a campaign encouraging the public to celebrate local nurses this International Nurses Day.
The #CelebratingHWNurses campaign recognises and celebrates the unwavering commitment of nurses across Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
Natalie Willetts, Director of Nursing and Quality at Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust said: “On the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birthday, it feels apt to share the following quote, ‘Rather, ten times, die in the surf, heralding the way to a new world, than stand idly on the shore’.
“We have experienced and overcome such challenges over the last few years, and I wish to extend my gratitude not only to nurses in our Trust, but those working across the two counties.
“Please join us in wishing all nurses and nursing professions across Herefordshire and Worcestershire a happy International Nurses Day.”
The Trust is inviting members of the public to get involved and share their messages of gratitude on social media, using the hashtag #CelebratingHWNurses.
