Over the years Florence has been an inspiration to many people and we’re thrilled that her legacy lives on today. We are delighted to announce that we have worked with Mattel on their Inspiring Women range, one of which is a Limited Edition Florence Nightingale collectable. We’ve liaised with them on details such as the Scutari Sash and the type Lamp Nightingale used and as you can see they’ve created a wonderful tribute to her. We hope that it will inspire many young people to seek a role in the healthcare profession just as Florence wished to become a nurse from a young age.
The Nightingale collectors’ item launches on International Women’s Day, March 8, along with Billie Jean King and Ella Fitzgerald versions. They will be available from our gift shop here at the Museum, £65.00 rrp from March 8, 2020 to celebrate Nightingale’s bicentenary.
