During the 2020 COVID-19 epidemic and during the shutdown period Connect Live had been preparing mains equipment for hospital installations undertaken by RP Electric at our warehouse in Weybridge. We decided to use our stock of equipment, which would otherwise be out on events, to light our warehouse in blue to say #ThankYouNHS to #OurNHS. This was also done in support of the #lightitblue #makeitblue campaign which recognises the work on health services around the world.
What we did
With 3 members of staff within the building we took the day to rig lighting and lasers carefully whilst adhering to all social distancing measures at all times. We had generous support from PRG for the use of their BadBoySpots and to Fusion Events Services for the pyro.
The video was viewed and shared thousands of times across our social media platforms and we hope this message goes afar and that it provides the recognition deserved to all the wonderful and brave key workers working tirelessly to fight Covid-19.
