Promote gang add a little colour to our lives amid Covid-19 crisis

AMH Promote – Action Mental Health’s service for adults with learning – is joining the global effort to brighten up our lives during the coronavirus pandemic.

The clients at the Bangor based service will be creating colourful rainbows to display in their windows, as over 100,000 budding young artists of all abilities across the world put their own artistic touches to the welcome colourful arcs in the sky.

The trend, thought to have originated in Italy, among one of the worst hit countries by Covid-19, has now reached the Promote gang in Bangor. It gathered momentum in the UK and Ireland following the recent closure of schools, following the example of rainbow makers around the world who are uniting on a Facebook page Believe In Rainbows, People are using the social media platform to share their versions of the symbol in a bid to spread a bit of joy amid the pandemic.

Paintings and coloured pictures of rainbows produced so far carry messages of hope and some even reflect the Government’s message on the spread of coronavirus: “Catch it, bin it, kill it”. Other messages have been found encouraging others to “Be kind,” “Stay Safe” and “Be positive”.
