NHS Posters

Hello everybody,

The poster project is live! Please head on over to http://www.nhsmillion.co.uk/nhs-posters to check out all your options. 

We worked with artists from across the UK who created black and white designs for you to print and colour in at home. Please put them up in your windows, work places, on the fridge - anywhere that needs a little cheer.

 

Please take photos and share them on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram - the NHS Million team will try to share them as best we can. Don't forget to use the hashtag #NHSMillion too. 

 

And please share this as far and as wide as you can. We want the NHS to know that we really do love and appreciate all of their work.
