The University of Northampton is giving people the chance to share a message of thanks to a Covid hero on their Energy Centre tower.

The structure, otherwise known as the power tower, turned blue each Thursday evening during the first lockdown as part of the Clap for Carers campaign.

Staff at the University of Northampton say it was their way of saying thank you to NHS workers on the frontline fighting the coronavirus pandemic, some of whom could see the tower from Northampton General Hospital. 

From 8-9pm each Thursday the 26-meter-tall tower and the 12-meter-high screen will be lit with thank you messages from around the county.

To share a message, you simply need to download the template and get creative. You could write a thank you to an individual who has helped you, create a piece of artwork, or write a short poem.
