Founder of Rose and Green, Tracey Lewis began the fundraising after spotting rainbow flags around North Somerset, supporting the NHS.

Tracey said: “I loved the rainbows and was struck by all the amazing efforts by doctors, nurses and carers putting themselves at risk during lockdown. It was then that I ordered rainbow fabrics.

“Then I thought, if I’m going to make these, I need to thank the NHS by donating the profits to NHS Charities. It was the least I could do. I have been blown away by the response.”

“It was the least I could do and I felt I was doing something to bring a smile, hope and comfort to people whilst raising some money for the NHS workers too.”
