'Poppy' chosen as name for RCN’s Lego nurse

  • Comment

A nurse constructed out of Lego building blocks to help mark the Royal College of Nursing’s centenary year has been named after student nurse Poppy Winckles. 

The model was gradually built during the event, which has been taking place in Glasgow since Saturday evening and finished on Wednesday.

A competition was also run to name the Lego nurse, with entrants donating a £1 to the RCN Foundation, which supports the nursing community through grants, bursaries and support services. It was subsequently named after Poppy Winckles, a third year adult nursing student.

After congress, the model will travel to London to be displayed at RCN headquarters in Cavendish Square.

Other items to commemorate the centenary include a display of nursing uniforms through the ages and a union banner made for the RCN by the Townswomen’s Guild.
