Light it blue

26th March, 2020

We’re all indebted to the front-line work NHS staff are doing across the country, caring for our friends, relatives and communities.

Every Thursday we will be joining the national campaign, Light It Blue, to share a very public display of thanks to NHS doctors, nurses and other staff for their critical work. 

Landmark buildings throughout Liverpool and all over the UK will turn blue every Thursday, as a salute to the NHS. As the nation stands on front doorsteps and in gardens to applaud NHS workers, the Dock’s Martin Luther King Jr building – a key entrance to the site – will glow blue in tribute to the NHS.

The Light It Blue campaign was inspired by the NHS Clap For Our Carers campaign. Industry leaders in events and entertainment wanted to create a simultaneous show of support, inviting landmarks across the country to #lightitblue.

Every Thursday evening will also see the Clap for our Carers campaign, which follows similar tributes in Spain and Italy. Join the nation and line up on your front door, window or balcony at 8pm to pay tribute to the NHS with a collective round of applause.

We know it’s a challenging time, not least for those in our communities who’re on the front-line of support. We send our heartfelt thanks to the doctors, nurses and other NHS staff for their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic, and of course thank all of our wider Dock community for your support, too.
