A local business has left a special message for the Kingdom’s NHS workers on behalf of the wider Fife community

In recent months the rainbow has become a symbol of thanks to, and recognition of, NHS staff during the Covid-19 pandemic.

And now those going to work at Kirkcaldy’s Victoria Hospital have a permanent reminder of how their efforts at this challenging time are appreciated by the community thanks to one Fife business.

Towards the end of last week Wrightline Roadmarkings Ltd, based in Cowdenbeath, painted the special colourful thank you message at the main entrance of the hospital.

In a social media post, NHS Fife wrote: “Wrightline wanted to channel their expertise to create a lasting legacy of thanks at the Victoria Hospital and got in touch with us via Facebook.

“The area was deliberately chosen so that patients and staff can see it on their way into work and from the windows of wards.”
