Commuters to Birmingham railway station were greeted this morning with a beautiful mosaic celebrating 160 years of looking after sick kids. The 7m x 8m mosaic is located on the floor in the station’s main concourse. It depicts the red brick iconic building and is lovingly surrounded and adorned by over 850 images of young patients, past and present. It is particularly poignant to Rachel, one of our esteemed committee members, because it contains a picture of her late daughter, Lucia, who was treated there. In the larger picture (opposite) Lucia is featured at the bottom right of the mosaic and has been highlighted.
