The university is recognising and supporting key workers in several ways and we’re inviting you to join in by taking part in our clap for carers video.
On Thursday at 8pm we have started sharing clapping videos on social media, to show support for everyone working in the NHS, the care sector, and all our key workers who are keeping the country running.
We'd like to share a different one every week, so if you would like to be part of our future videos, please send us videos of you clapping at home, in your halls or other accommodation, using these instructions:
At 11am on Tuesday 28 April, students and colleagues stopped for a moment of reflection and joined in a minute’s silence to pay our respects and give thanks to those whose work involves caring, saving lives, keeping key services running, as well as showing our support for the families of those who have died.
We joined the national tribute on International Workers Memorial Day, the day which every year commemorates workers who have died around the globe.
