At Fenwick, we’d like to show our ongoing support for all the incredible, lifesaving work of the NHS front line workers. As a ‘Thank You’, we have created The Tote Bag using artwork by the children of keyworkers of the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Celebrating our local heroes, all profits from our tote bag sales will be donated to the NHS.
As part of a special tribute to thousands of North East hospital staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, we have dedicated our Northumberland Street window at [Fenwick Newcastle](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/stores/newcastle) to the frontline workers of the NHS with drawings created by their children. A hand-made patchwork quilt, again designed using the children’s drawings, will also feature as part of the window display.
More than 50 of the children’s images have been chosen at random, and members of the public will not only get to see the artwork on show but can also donate to the Newcastle Hospital’s own charity by buying special tote bags, commissioned and produced by Fenwick, which feature one of the children’s drawings. Sold in-store at Fenwick Newcastle and online, profits from the sale of each bag will be donated directly to the Trust.
Libby (age 6 from South Shields), whose mum, Sarah, is a Specialist Respiratory Consultant and has been working on the frontline treating COVID-19 patients for the past ten weeks, is one of the children whose ‘rainbow heart’ design was chosen for the tote bag. She said, “It was really fun to do as I like drawing. I’ve made lots of rainbow pictures for our house and our neighbours so I decided to make this one a bit different and made it into a heart. I liked using all the bright colours and I’ve talked to mum about what the NHS is and how it is looking after people. My mum is a doctor and helps make poorly people better. I’m really excited to see the window and my mum is going to use one of my bags at work."
