With your help The Florence Nightingale Museum wants to stage an exhibition to mark the 200 year anniversary of the birth of the Lady With The Lamp.

Nightingale 2020 bicentenary exhibition

We want to bring Nightingale to life in 200 objects, people and places who made her what she was. Next year, during her bicentenary year, we want to remember all her amazing achievements as a healthcare pioneer in a male-dominated world.

As a leader, campaigner and female icon in her own lifetime she had an impact on healthcare which still resonates today.

In 2020 it will be almost 200 years since The Lady With The Lamp began to chip away at the glass ceiling on behalf of all the women who were to follow her, so help us celebrate the life of this incredible lady with an exhibition which highlights her remarkable legacy.

With your help we’ll be able to show how her legacy lives on, inspiring today’s leaders and campaigners to improve society for all.

We need your help to raise the £15,000 needed to tell the story of this extraordinary icon’s life during her bicentenary. You can choose from an exclusive range of rewards inspired by Florence Nightingale’s life especially for this campaign.

Please donate today to help tell the story of Florence’s life and contribution to healthcare.
