Queens Hotel in Southsea backs NHS workers with 'dramatic light show'
OWNERS of the Queens Hotel have backed the NHS by illuminating its Edwardian era building with the health service's logo.
It comes as NHS workers are flat out caring for patients with coronavirus and others in hospitals across Britain.
There are now 42 cases of patients with Covid-19 in the Portsmouth council area, 267 in Hampshire and 32 in Southampton.
Last night at 8pm applause broke out in the streets of Portsmouth as people clapped to support health workers. Led by prime minister Boris Johnson outside No 10 Downing Street, the applause rippled across Britain.
On Instagram the hotel’s account posted: ‘Showing our support to the NHS Heroes.’
Hotel managing director Farid Yeganeh, whose firm said it put on the ‘dramatic light show’, said: ‘We wanted to show our support for the wonderful NHS workers who are making such a difference during this difficult time.’
