People are being urged to shine a light from their window at 8pm this evening to mark the day and show their appreciation for all that nurses are doing to save and rebuild the lives of patients with coronavirus.

Nurses tirelessly, day in and day out to save lives, and today Mid & East Antrim Council want to praise the work of our nurses on International Nurses Day.

Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Councillor Maureen Morrow, said: “Now more than ever I want to show my appreciation for nurses on International Nurses Day as we navigate our way through this pandemic. International Nurses’ Day is a chance to shout about how thoroughly wonderful our nurses are and thank them for their dedication, professionalism and valued contribution in these challenging times.”

Alderman Tommy Nicholl MBE, added: “International Nurses Day is a special day to express gratitude to the phenomenal nurses working round the clock to keep us healthy. I would especially like to express my thanks to them for the recent treatment I received which was fantastic.”

Councillor Danny Donnelly, who has been a nurse in the Ulster Hospital for 11 years, said: “I really enjoy being a Nurse and while it’s certainly challenging, especially at the minute, it’s also a very rewarding career. Being able to help people when they are sick is an incredible privilege. I love to see the colourful rainbows in people’s windows around Larne and the other signs of support for the NHS at this time.”

Councillor William McCaughey, who runs a pharmacy, said: “International Nurses’ Day is a chance to shout about how thoroughly wonderful our nurses are and I would like to thank them for their dedication, professionalism and valued contribution in these challenging times.”

Alderman Robin Cherry MBE, who also recently received treatment, added: “Nurses are the world’s life-savers. They are risking their own health and too often sacrificing time with their family to help those suffering from COVID-19.”

People are being urged to shine a light from their window at 8pm this evening to mark the day and show their appreciation for all that nurses are doing to save and rebuild the lives of patients with coronavirus.
