School pupils use Plus-Plus to remember those lost to Covid-19

Each individual block represented one life lost, forming a striking and thought-provoking scene that encouraged visitors to reflect upon the events of the past year.

Kids at St John’s Highbury Vale Church of England School have used colourful Plus-Plus blocks to memorialise the 84,000 people from Islington, Hackney and the City of London who have lost their lives to Covid-19 since the pandemic began.

The colourful blocks were generously donated by the Danish toy company Plus-Plus after its CEO spotted a story about the project in the Tribune.

Once the shipment of blocks arrived, pupils at the school then spent their Easter holiday finishing the installation at St Augustine’s church. Each individual block represented one life lost, forming a striking and thought-provoking scene that encouraged visitors to reflect upon the events of the past year.
