The people of the UK have been amazed and in awe of our NHS SuperHeroes. These superheroes have been on the front line of danger and left their homes daily knowing they could be leaving their loved one’s behind, showing deep courage to overcome those fears to protect the people of their country. Simply put, every one of us is truly indebted for what these superheroes have done for us.
Matt Hancock during his speeches made the comment that we are trying to identify an appropriate way to remember and celebrate these individuals. This really struck a cord to me, as personally, that is what my work at Tailored Yarn is all about (see below). I feel that creating a book in honour of NHS superheroes’ heroics, bravery and service is a great way to ‘celebrate their lives’ and a project that the people of the UK could all contribute to in order to show their appreciation.
Tailored Yarn is planning to create two amazing & unique “NHS SuperHero” books to capture and preserve the memories and stories of our NHS superheroes and inspire children to work in the NHS. These books will ‘Preserve Memories’ by capturing the NHS SuperHeroes names, the depth of their heroics, the voices of the people they saved, and their NHS story in order to celebrate their lives, remember their heroics and use their names to inspire the children of the future. The aim is to create two books; a non-fiction book to capture real life stories and a fictional book to inspire the young (5-10 year old children), with both books celebrating the life of our NHS superheroes.
*** All profits and fund raising in excess of the book production costs will go to the selected charities of our NHS Superhero families***
The non-fiction book will capture the motivations of these superheroes, the personal perspectives from family and staff, and also the patients who they saved. It’s a perfect way for the people of the UK to feel proud and take a moment to truly understand, appreciate and show their respect to these individuals and their journeys. Every affected family and hospital across the UK will be offered a printed copy of this book (subject to funding) as a poignant memory to share and remember these heroes.
The fictional book uses the roles and jobs of our superheroes, in a story setting to celebrate the heroes within the NHS and their actions. The book will use a combination of facts around actions of our NHS superheroes, within a non-fictional setting to create an inspiring story to help communicate to children what happened, why these NHS people are heroes, and motivate children to see the NHS as an amazing place to work. The names of these NHS superheroes will be included in the book as a point of factual reference under each chapter – with each chapter being a mini superhero story in itself.
