The Cavell Nurses’ Trust has launched a three year centenary appeal (from 2012-2015) to mark the death of Nurse Edith Cavell in 1915. British Nurse Cavell was court martialled and executed by firing squad after helping 200 Allied troops to escape from German-occupied Belgium into neutral Holland in 1915.

The Trust offers "help to registered nurses, midwives, health care assistants, student nurses and retired nurses who have given a lifetime of caring and compassion" - and hopes the appeal will help to double the number of people it can support.
