AOC Writing Competition Winner - Bola Lafe

This year the Art of Caring and Dr Karen Norman (Visiting Professor, Kingston University and St George's, University of London) asked nursing students at Kingston University and St George's University of London to come up with one word that they felt reflected the inspirational work done by the charity Nurse Reaching Out. They wrote their chosen word in wool, in their chosen language, reflecting the diversity of the students and the charity - reflecting  this years International Nurse Day theme: a truly inclusive “Health For All.”

We launched our Writing Competition in April 2019 as part of the Art of Caring exhibition. Writers from across the globe submitted short written texts of no longer than 100 words, in any format (e.g. poetry/fiction/reportage etc). They had to use at least one of the student's words in their composition. Below is the winning entry from Bola Lafe, who will be presented with his prize at the next Art of Caring exhibition at St Pancras Hospital (18th July - October 2019).
