“It’s the sunset horizon of King’s Lynn, so it was special displaying the NHS logo in blue and rainbow and a little heroes tribute for the kids.

“It’s been a really good one to do, we hope our message to the NHS has been achieved again.

“For me personally, it’s amazing. I get chocked up by some of the messages we get from people, to see how much it touches them and to get these little stories makes it really worthwhile.”
