Nurse relives Olympics ceremony in new photo exhibition
Pat Brown has been selected to take part in a one-off photography exhibition to celebrate the one year anniversary of the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Ms Brown, 51, who works at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, performed in the now famous opening ceremony, part of which paid tribute to the health service.
The photography exhibition, based next to the Olympic Park, includes photos of 22 people who volunteered at the games, of which Ms Brown is the only nurse.
The photo features Ms Brown wearing the same costume she wore for the Opening Ceremony in July 2012.
Ms Brown, who has been a nurse in the NHS for over 30 years, said: “I was so proud to represent the NHS to the world.
“Taking part was a real challenge, the training was tough but it was worth it and it is something I will never forget.”
The “What the Games Makers did next” exhibition was launched on 13 July and will run for six weeks.
