Millie Marotta’s Love NHS – Get Colouring for Our Carers

Love NHS by Millie Marotta

Celebrate our NHS heroes by joining Millie Marotta’s Love NHS initiative and get creative with colour.

Every day they care for us and save our lives. To show our appreciation for the amazing people who make up the NHS, bestselling colouring book illustrator Millie Marotta calls on the nation to colour for our carers.

Colouring is a great way to get creative indoors. It’s also a relaxing activity that can help keep anxious thoughts at bay. In this time of crisis, many of us are feeling worried. Millie Marotta’s Love NHS initiative offers a way to de-stress through the mindful activity of colouring in while celebrating the heroes working in the National Health Service.

You can download and print the colouring sheet below and get creative with pencils, pens or paint. If you don’t have access to a printer, use your smartphone to colour in.

Post your coloured illustration on social media, tagged with #LoveNHS and #ColourForOurCarers. You could even display the coloured-in poster in your window to show your support for the NHS.

Let’s fill our windows and digital world with colour to celebrate our carers!


Behind the project is illustrator Millie Marotta. In 2015 her debut title Millie Marotta’s Animal Kingdom spent a record 22 weeks as the official paperback non-fiction No.1. Working from her studio by the sea in West Wales, Millie’s intricate illustrations are inspired by a love of wildlife and fascination with the natural world.

We really hope you’ll join us in celebrating the NHS with colouring!
