Tom Harrison, equality, diversity and inclusion facilitator, said: “I’m really impressed with the team effort that’s gone into celebrating Black History Month 2021.

“Sharing our diverse culture helps all our colleagues feel valued and at home in the trust.”

Black History Month, which runs throughout October, recognises the contribution and achievements of those with African or Caribbean heritage and celebrates key figures who have made substantial and memorable contributions. It is also an opportunity for people to learn more about the impact of racism and how to challenge negative stereotypes.
