South Shields family colour in every brick of their home to show their support for the NHS
A dedicated family have spent three days colouring in every brick of their West Harton house in a touching tribute to the NHS.
Lauren Guy and her six-year-old daughter Alana Mae Fada decided to colour in every brick in the front and side of their house.
The dedicated duo with the help of partner Raymond Fada, 31, went through an estimated 20 packs of chalk to colour in every brick to spruce up the house to show their gratitude to the NHS.
The 29-year-old mum said: “Me and my daughter wanted to do something colourful and I thought we could start colouring in the bricks.
“We coloured in every brick over three days to show our appreciation and gratitude to those working in the NHS.
“We must have gone through 20 packs of chalk to colour every brick.”
And the family have been overwhelmed with the response.
Lauren, who is also mum to Leon Fada, added: “Everyone has been sharing it on Facebook and people have been stopping when they’ve walked past to take pictures and ask us about it.
“It’s all about showing our appreciation to the NHS. I think it’s absolutely amazing what they’re doing.”
The house in Lavender Lane, West Harton, is now the most colourful on the street and even has a thank you message on the side and writing urging the public to stay safe.
Thousands of NHS staff have come out of retirement to join the effort as an increasing number of people are hospitalised with coronavirus across the country.
