Popular Post Kimbers Posted June 2, 2022 Popular Post Report Share Posted June 2, 2022 I am so very proud to tell you all that Wendy is being recognised in the Jubilee Birthday Honours list. During lockdown 1 and 2 I watched Wendy work all day as a nurse then come home and paint until almost midnight, then get up, do it all again and spend weekends in her studio. I believe the final figure was 67 portraits and she contacted everyone one or their families and learnt their “backstory” many of which were stories of heroes in themselves, normal people doing extraordinary things. We tend to forget the level of death linked to COVID when it first hit and all this while Nurses, Doctors, HCA’s, Cleaning Staff, support staff and everyone in the NHS bore the brunt. Wendy too did this, working with those most vulnerable in the community. In her normal self depreciation when she learnt she wanted the award to be for everyone she painted and works with. So, so proud for her to be recognised. She's in so many papers from the Sun to the Mail, we are both astounded. Can I also ask a favour of our members? The Shropshire Star did a whole article on her and I was wondering if anyone could buy a copy and send it to us? More than happy to cover your costs. https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/uk-news/2022/06/01/nurse-who-painted-dozens-of-nhs-worker-portraits-thrilled-with-medal/ https://www.eveningnews24.co.uk/news/norwich-nhs-nurse-makes-queens-honours-list-9008988?fbclid=IwAR0w2nBPyR7pQLyPg3K7V4zDR4e-kgfz07vQdO4KRkIvXObrla77a3c2nUo 19 5 Quote Possibly save your life.
