Nightingale’s Rainbow

nightingale rainbow header

Show your appreciation and support for those who have supported you or your local community through the Covid-19 crisis by dedicating a Rainbow Tile to them on Nightingale’s Rainbow.

Leave a personal message of thanks on our Virtual Rainbow as a lasting reminder of the small and large acts of kindness and support which have been shown in all our communities over the past 14 months.



Each Rainbow Tile costs £20, with the proceeds split between Buckinghamshire NHS Charitable Fund and Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity to support nurses, other healthcare workers and patients across the county as we recover from the pandemic.

The cost of constructing the Rainbow is being covered by Build Sponsors - local organisations and individuals who are committed to funding this permanent symbol of hope and kindness in the face of adversity.

About Nightingale’s Rainbow

Nightingale's Rainbow will be a large installation, consisting of an arch covered with thousands of coloured tiles in rainbow colours located on the roundabout at the A&E Entrance to Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, close to Florence Nightingale Hospice.

Nightingale's Rainbow is intended to be a physical monument to remember the community spirit and kindness shown across the communities of Buckinghamshire during the pandemic and a permanent symbol of hope in the face of adversity.

Each of the thousands of Rainbow Tiles can be dedicated to an individual, group or organisation, with messages shared on the Virtual Rainbow - a lasting reminder of the small and large acts of kindness and support which have been shown over the past 14 months.

The money raised through the sale of Rainbow Tiles will be donated to Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity and the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund to support nurses, other healthcare workers and patients across the county as we recover from the pandemic.
