Covid-19 has radically altered the way in which we all live our lives. Amongst the inconvenience of the virus, we have also seen positive effects on communities from fundraising to people helping more vulnerable neighbours.
The #RemoteSilverLinings campaign wants to capture these small positives that have come about because of the current circumstances.
We’re all really proud of how the St George’s community has come together to help during the pandemic whether providing clinical support, volunteering in the community or researching methods to tackle the virus.
The remote silver linings campaign wants to capture the smaller benefits that you’ve found have come about due to lockdown.

"A personal silver lining for me has been that lockdown has meant that I take my flatmate’s dog, Andi, to the park more often – you can see her pre and post walk above."
“My flatmates are both key workers at Kingston Hospital and so have not had time to walk Andi. Having that time to enjoy the outdoors, helping my flatmates (if only a miniscule amount) and seeing the look of joy on the dog’s face at the park makes things seem a bit better.”

Shared some inspirational quotes at this difficult time; ‘You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.’ Jon Kabat-Zinn. ‘We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.’ - Helen Keller. She also shared a picture of a wall hanging that she has embroidered during lockdown.
Please tag us, or use #Remotesilverlinings, if there are any silver linings that you have discovered when remote studying/working. This could be having more free time, spending more time with your family or flatmates or even picking up a new hobby – whatever it is we would love to hear about it.
