About the campaign

Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, Anna Calvi is the only solo artist to have had three consecutive Mercury Prize Album of the Year nominations and has recently composed the original score for Peaky Blinders Season 5. She is now taking part in a new challenge to raise money for front-line healthcare workers.

About The RCN Foundation

The RCN Foundation is an independent charity with close links to the Royal College of Nursing. It was established in 2010, and its aim is to support nursing and improve the health and wellbeing of the public. RCN Foundation is there for every current and former nurse, midwife and health care support workers and supports, strengthens and champions the nursing and midwifery community throughout the UK.

The money from this challenge will go to the RCN Foundation COVID-19 Support Fund, which directly responds to challenges faced by frontline health and social care staff. One health care worker, who has already received financial support during the COVID-19 crisis said: “The grant from the RCN Foundation has made an unimaginable difference, both financially and emotionally at this difficult time. It has enabled me to pay my bills and continue to self-isolate for several more weeks, which has been such a relief to me and my family, given my ongoing underlying health issues. I’m so grateful for the support.”
