ARU health facility illuminated to support those battling on healthcare front line
Last night saw the third secret venue in Cambridge’s #LightItBlue campaign revealed as Anglia Ruskin University's Young Street building was illuminated in unison with the 8pm Clap For Carers movement to thank the NHS and all key workers for the fantastic work they are doing to help us all.
ARU’s Young Street building is a relatively new addition to the ever-changing face of Cambridge and houses the Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care providing teaching space for nursing, midwifery and other health courses.
Professor Nigel Harrison, Pro Vice Chancellor and Dean of the Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care at ARU, said:
This was organised for the third week by local event and lighting companies (The Crane Event, Pink Lamp and JMPS) the team behind illuminating King’s College, and Storeys Field Centre in previous weeks.
Justin Crane, of The Crane Event, said:
For the safety of all, the planning of this campaign was done from the organisers' homes, and the venue kept under wraps until the installation was removed. The team will illuminate another secret venue next week using the same strict precautions.
