PICTURE SPECIAL - Bromsgrove, Rubery and South Birmingham's Rainbows of Hope

Bromsgrove Editorial 16th Apr, 2020 Updated: 21st Apr, 2020   0

WITH today being NHS day and the next Clap for Our Carers just a couple of hours away, we thought now would be a good time to put together a picture special of all your Rainbows of Hope.

Kieyah 5 From Bromsgrove

Earlier in the week we asked you to send in your rainbow designs and you did not disappoint!

Buddy from Lickey End

In fact, this has been the best response to anything we have done with our readers – and that takes some doing.

Townsends, Finstall

We did not also know how many different ways rainbows could be portrayed – whether through paintings, window decorations, rock painting and even salt dough!

Tyler Caudy, seven years old, from Catshill.

It also shows the strength of public feeling and the love everyone in Bromsgrove, Rubery, Droitwich, South Birmingham and further afield has for the NHS and those key workers keeping us safe on a daily basis and going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we have everything we need during these testing times.

Alula (8 months) And Aurora (4 years) with a rainbow shield we made!!

We want to say a big thank you to everyone who has sent in their Rainbows of Hope for our display and of course to all the frontline NHS staff, carers, careworkers, emergency services, delivery drivers, social workers and all the other essential workers doing so much during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Imogen (9) and Harry (3) Spalding, Bromsgrove.

And, as it is NHS Day, make sure you are as loud and as proud as you possibly can be at 8pm tonight when we go to our doorsteps, windows and balconies.

Jack (3) Bromsgrove

Clap, cheer, bang pots and pans and let those on the frontline know how much what they are doing means to us and how much we appreciate their efforts.

Grace from Bromsgrove

We are still adding to our collection – if you want to send them in, email [email protected]

Amber, 6, Charford Bromsgrove

Stay at home and stay safe everyone.
