National Police Memorial signals front line support for NHS workers

Bluelight services were honoured for their efforts through the fight against Covid-19 by a special display at the National Police Memorial in central London.

In a show of support and solidarity with the NHS, the glass column at the National Police Memorial was illuminated by a blue light as a tribute to the efforts of the NHS and all the emergency services personnel who are working throughout the Covid-19 outbreak.

Located at the Mall in Westminster, the memorial remembers around 40,000 officers who have so far lost their lives in the line of duty. 

On Thursday this week people across the UK came onto their doorsteps, windows, balconies and front gardens at 8pm to applaud NHS workers.

Geraldine Winner, Chair of The Police Memorial Trust said: “During these extremely difficult times we are grateful for the fantastic work that all the people working in the NHS are doing alongside all the other emergency services.

"In this time of National emergency The Police Memorial Trust want to show our appreciation and support to all the amazing people who work in the Blue Light Services so last night our blue light shone in the darkness from dusk til dawn and to honour all those who serve to keep us safe”.

She went on to say: "To all of those people who work in the Bluelamp Services I want to say two simple, but heartfelt words, ‘Thank You’, thank you for looking after us at this crucial time”.
