Key workers who have lost their lives during the Covid-19 pandemic were remembered as part of a memorial event.
Members of the Wisbech, March and District Trades Council attended a small socially distanced event on April 28 to observe a minute’s silence for those who worked in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
The remembrance was part of workers’ memorial day held by the Trades Council, where those attending were encouraged to wear purple as a mark of respect.
A Trades Council spokesperson said: “Covid has taken the lives and ravaged the health of key workers who’ve been working to protect us and keep things running.
“Every year, we think of the people who have lost their lives at work or from work-related injury and diseases and call for renewed efforts to prevent more deaths, injuries and disease.”
