WITH the coronavirus outbreak continuing to spread across the UK, an emergency hospital has been set up in the ExCel Centre to help with the growing demand – and they are calling on kids to help decorate it.
The NHS staff and creators of the NHS Nightingale Hospital have enlisted the help of children to help decorate the walls and bring colour to the makeshift hospital by sending in pictures they've drawn of rainbows.

The project Rainbows for Nightingale encourages messages of hope and pictures drawn by children to decorate the bare walls and help brighten the mood for staff and patients who are in hospital.
They ask for families to encourage their children to get creative on an A4 piece of paper by drawing a colourful picture and, if possible, laminate them before sending.
However, they do say that if laminating is not possible there are volunteers to do this in the interests of hygiene.
In their Facebook post, they also say suggest children to draw as many as they like and state there are no restrictions on sharing the love.
Pictures should then be sent the the appropriate regional hub where they'll be collected and delivered to Nightingale Hospital.
For all the information, and for the correct postal address for your region, see the Rainbows for Nightingale Facebook page.
This initiative comes after kids have been putting pictures of rainbows in windows, to help lift their spirits during lockdown.
