West Lothian College staff thank NHS workers in video

Every Thursday during lockdown people have been celebrating the work of everyone at the frontline of NHS and social care along with key workers by clapping at 8pm on doorsteps around the country. West Lothian College staff have joined the many showing their appreciation by coming together to record a very special message.

During these unprecedented times, people have been cheering, banging pots, clapping hands and honking car horns to show recognition and appreciation for the fantastic work being done by NHS and frontline staff.

The staff at West Lothian College have shown their appreciation with a video message which commended the work being done and also reassured students who have been studying from home since March that although the building may be closed the college is still very much virtually open to help them successfully complete their course.

The video features members of the college senior team, lecturers, support staff. estates staff, SVQ assessors and interns.

Greg Clark, Marketing Assistant at West Lothian College said:

“The idea behind the video was a way for us to show thanks to the NHS and frontline workers and let people know that the college is still virtually open.

I put the feelers out to see if anyone would be interested in contributing and within an hour I had over 30 responses from staff members. It was nice to see everyone again even if just in photo form!”
