Florence Nightingale Week
In September 2020 we ran a virtual Florence Nightingale week across 4 Primary Schools: Flimby, Dearham, Arlecdon and Thornhill, reaching 394 children.
Volunteers from Business Toolbox Cumbria, Mott MacDonald, Red Pike Education and Sellafield Ltd developed workshops that took children on a journey which started 200 years ago with the birth of Florence to the current day with the building of the new Nightingale Hospitals used to help with the Coronavirus outbreak.
