Healthcare assistant Pragna captures the changing of the seasons for colleagues who might have missed them

Home News Moments you might have missed

Pragna, a healthcare care assistant working in the breast cancer clinic captured the change in the cherry blossom on her way to work, which could have been missed by some of her colleagues at UCLH on the front line.

‘I took early retirement to become a volunteer a at the Cancer Centre to give something back as my mum was treated at UCLH. Whilst volunteering I realised I was making a difference.  In 2015 I was awarded Volunteer of the year; I was very touched as I was nominated by patients. Since then I have been employed as a healthcare assistant and have been presented with Excellence Awards.

"When the Covid-19 lockdown started, I thought of our front line workers. The Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom in Regent’s Park.  I knew that my colleagues would be missing out, so I started this photography project. I have walked through Regent’s Park for the last 40 years and it has always cheered me up, all photos are from there. Starting with the Cherry Blossoms and ending with a white rose with a bud representing loss of life and a bud to flower for the future.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed taking them.’
