Swansea City show support on National Day of Reflection

23rd March 2021
National Day of Reflection

Today (March 23) marks the one-year anniversary of the first UK lockdown as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Swansea City has worked with Marie Curie on a national campaign to provide a day to reflect so that we can all remember, grieve, and celebrate the lives of everyone who we have lost and show support for our families, friends and colleagues who have been bereaved.

Swansea City chief executive, Julian Winter, will lay a yellow wreath at the club’s memorial garden this morning in remembrance of those we have lost as a football family.

The Liberty Stadium will tonight be lit up in yellow as a sign of reflection, support and hope. We ask the Jack Army to join us to:

  • Reflect – Please join us in observing a minute’s silence at 12 noon and 9pm. You can put daffodils in your window and light a candle at 9pm. Junior Jacks are welcome to colour in a yellow heart to display in their windows.
  • Support – Please reach out to offer support to those who have been bereaved or affected. Simply sending a message or making a phone call can mean so much at this most difficult time.
  • Hope – Together we hope for a better and brighter future.

The club will announce a special tribute to our supporters who we have lost later today.
