Rainbows give hope amid coronavirus lockdown

THERE are rainbows appearing in windows of homes across the Buckie area and further afield as children bid to bring joy to the area amid isolation.

Children are being encouraged to draw pictures of rainbows with positive messages to keep everyone going.

They also contain key messages, including urging people to stay at home and to wash their hands. Others voice their support and gratitude for key workers battling the Covid-19 virus at the front line, often at great risk to themselves, in the NHS, those who care for the vulnerable and the other emergency services.

The idea was the brainchild of Elgin mum-of-three Alison Scott, who created the group From My Window Moray on Facebook, which has now amassed 3500 members.

Alison said: "It's lovely. People seem to have really taken the idea on board.

"For parents at home with the kids it's a great thing to do – it offers the chance of a wee break, a distraction from the pressure of home schooling."

If you have rainbow pictures from your home you would like to share, send them to mail@banffshireadvertiser.co.uk.
