This evening Coventry was illuminated to say thank you to our frontline staff and mark the 200th birthday of the Lady of the Lamp, Florence Nightingale.

This year holds extra special significance as around the world healthcare professionals of all kinds battle to protect the public from the coronavirus outbreak and save lives.

We broke out of lockdown to light up Foleshill Community Centre. The home of Feeding Coventry, a food charity doing all kinds of good right now. What a beacon of light! Enjoy this short spoken word that was literally created in the moment by the wonderful Ellie House.
