Florette unveils Rainbow to mark NHS, Social Care, and Frontline Workers’ Day

Florette unveils Rainbow to mark NHS, Social Care, and Frontline Workers’ Day

More than 6,000 Florette fans at this year’s BBC Good Food Show helped to create a 14ft wide rainbow honouring the NHS. It was created by visitors to the Florette stand at the show, with each person picking a rainbow colour and then adding their own thumbprint to the design. Here’s a timelapse video of the mural being created:

On Tuesday 5th July the completed rainbow was unveiled at NHS University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire to mark NHS, Social Care, and Frontline Workers’ Day.

The unveiling was attended by Margaret Kennan, the first person in the world to receive the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. The 92-year-old received the vaccine at the hospital and returned to add the final thumbprint to the mural alongside Matron May Parsons, who administered Margaret’s first jab in December 2020. The event was also attended by the Lord Mayor of Coventry, Cllr Maton, who gave his own ‘thumbs up’ to the rainbow mural.

The mural will now be on permanent display as a tribute to the hard work of NHS, social care, and frontline services throughout the pandemic and beyond. As well as the unveiling of the mural, Florette provided a healthy lunch to over 500 onsite staff with free goody bags.
