TUESDAY, APRIL 10: Members of the public will have a chance to be permanently linked to the new hospital next week.
The Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust will be inviting the public to be a part of a new flower garden mural in support of the hospital redevelopment project.
Next week at the Annual Agricultural Exhibition, the Trust will have a booth to share more information about the project and the mural.
DeShae DeShields, marketing manager of the BHCT, said: “What we’re doing is we have a whole wall that’s painted blue and we have stickers made and we’re getting people to come up to the booth and say why the hospital matters.
“We have had children say ‘because my mama is a nurse’ or ‘because my mama has diabetes’.
“We want to show people that the hospital is more than bricks and mortar.”
Ms DeShields said each person who visits the booth would be given a form to fill out on why the hospital matters to him or her.
They will also get a flower sticker that they can sign and stick on the wall.
“We have artists who are creating a beautiful mural.
“They are going to be painting all three days to connect all the flowers together.
“It’s going to be beautiful and look like a growing vine.”
The booth will be held at the Point Finger entrance to the exhibition.
“The hospital is right next to the exhibition so I am trying to get people to come to the Point Finger Road entrance because they’re not sure what’s happening behind the wall.
“It’s more than just a building.
“It’s more about how it’s going to impact me as an individual.”
The booth will be open daily from 11am to 3pm all three days of the exhibition.
