Belfast city centre thanks workers for `keeping heart gently beating'

The outdoor display, which is being projected onto the façade of Ulster University at York Street from 9pm to midnight each evening, lists the wide range of organisations that are enabling life in the city to function.

A GIANT `thank you' is being beamed onto a wall for all the key workers and organisations which have kept `the heart of Belfast city centre gently beating during lockdown'.

The visual wall display has been created to show appreciation for the NHS and healthcare workers and recognise key workers of businesses and organisations.

It is being projected onto the façade of Ulster University at York Street from 9pm to midnight every evening and lists the organisations that are enabling life in the city to function during the pandemic, including the PSNI, Translink, Belfast City Council, Belfast Harbour, voluntary organisations, emergency services, pharmacies, banks, supermarkets, and professional services providers.

Belfast City Centre Management's electrical contractors, Galaxy Facilities Management are creating the display as they continues to work on site beside it which will be Ulster University's new campus, adjacent to where the outdoor display is taking place.

Meanwhile, Translink has given two trains makeovers in support of the #ChaseTheRainbow movement.

It unveiled the massive `Trainbows' as `moving symbols of hope and solidarity for people as they see them travelling across the network".

Translink is using its vehicles, bus shelters, billboards and social media to display uplifting `rainbows of hope' while promoting safety advice to stay home and save lives during the Covid-19 crisis.
