On May the 8th staff, students, alumni, friends and families from the University Centre at Blackburn College, together with children from Blackburn Children’s University and members of the 5th Rishton Brownies commemorated VE Day 2020 by taking part in a variety of activities at home. Everyone was asked to send us photos and videos of their activities and we have made a showreel to capture everything. People were invited to make bunting, sing a song, do a dance, bake cakes, write a poem and we had a great response. Thanks to everyone involved and we hope you enjoy our showreel and photographs from the event.
The event was held remotely in accordance with government guidelines on social distancing.
We are disappointed that due to the pandemic residents at EACHSTEP Care Home were unable to join us in our original plans for a VE Day party at UCBC or take part in the activities but we hope they enjoy watching the showreel and reading the letters sent to them from The Children’s University.
A special “thank you” to:
