Florence Nightingale was born in 1820. Here in this celebratory video, Margaret Eddershaw reads and performs her nine poems about Florence. By producing this video, it is hoped that funds will be raised to build a Health Centre at Ibba Girl's School in South Sudan. The poems are interpolated with a biographical narrative read by Keith Sturgess.
