SUN 20 DEC 2020: On the latest episode of her Youtube series Rainbow Woman, Geri Horner (née Halliwell) delivers Christmas presents to NHS workers in London who have worked tirelessly in the battle against COVID-19. Episode 7 – ‘Thank You’ – premieres at 2.00PM GMT today. Watch here.
“Today’s not about me,” Geri said as she bundles up Christmas presents in a van. “It’s about some amazing people that deserve appreciation, kindness and love, and we’re going to go and share it with them.”
On her way to meet the NHS workers, Geri reflects, “They go above and beyond every day, they just do. So today is about acknowledging that.”
One of the NHS heroes Geri meets is Sara Finkel, a freshly qualified Intensive Care Unit nurse, who had only been working at the hospital for three months before the global pandemic took its toll.
“It was like war. Literally, like a battle zone,” she tells Geri. “Nobody had a chance to stop and think. Everyone was just trying to keep people alive, minute after minute, day after day.”
Expressing her gratitude to Sara and all NHS workers, Geri said: “We should feel so proud that we have people like Sara in our communities and in our country. Thank you to everyone out there that has cared for us.”

To accompany Episode 7, Geri will also premiere the lyric video for her cover of the 1973 folk-rock song by Jim Croce ‘I Got A Name’ on Tuesday.
Written, directed and executive produced by Geri, Rainbow Woman is a collection of vibrant vignettes following her on big and little adventures, each hued with humour and their own message of hope and positivity. A new episode will be unveiled every Sunday on Geri’s YouTube channel with bonus content for fans to follow. Subscribe to Geri’s channel here.
