The developers behind the prestigious Television Centre scheme and its nearby White City Place development in west London are showing support for the fight against Coronavirus this Easter.
Both the WestWorks building in White City Place and the iconic façade of the former BBC Television Centre will be bathed in a bright blue light, from dusk until dawn to pay tribute to the NHS and emergency services.
Additional charitable initiatives include a donation of 1,000 Easter eggs to doctors, nurses and support staff, at local Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust hospitals, Hammersmith and Charing Cross. A batch of 200 Easter eggs will also be gifted to pupils with severe learning difficulties from Jack Tizard School in Shepherd’s Bush.
New ‘community’ channel WCPConnect has launched to provide regular, programmed content for White City Place’s office, retail and restaurant occupiers and tenants during the lockdown period.
At a time when stability and routine are highly sought after, the aim of WCPConnect is to bring a consistent and familiar programme of events that the community usually would have access to on campus, virtually to their living rooms and home offices. The free daily content created for WCPConnect, will be available to stream live or on catch-up via YouTube and will also be accessible to the wider public.
A range of classes and workshops will be hosted by local teachers, residents, creatives and occupiers including morning meditation, lunchtime yoga; cookery tutorials; pub quiz-style fundraisers; live music; creative masterclasses and much more.
