Sefton Council has lit up one of its civic buildings in the colours of the NHS to send a message of support to the countless health staff who are working tirelessly to fight the COVID-19 outbreak.
Bootle Town Hall was bathed in blue lights this evening (Thursday, March 26) joining hundreds of other civic buildings across the UK following the viral ‘Clap For Our Carers’ campaign.
The Oriel Road facade of the building proudly displayed the colours of the NHS to reiterate the overwhelming level of support, thanks and thoughts for our hard working frontline health staff
Cllr Ian Maher, Leader of Sefton Council, said: “Our appreciation for the thousands of people in our borough working for the NHS, as well as those across the UK is endless.
“Now more than ever we are indebted to their tireless service and support they are giving to our residents during these unprecedented times.
“Lighting up Bootle Town Hall is only a small token of our massive appreciation for the NHS and we are continuing to do all we can to support our communities and make them as resilient as possible to keep pressure off the NHS.”
