University statement:


"The University of Sunderland is deeply saddened by the current situation in Ukraine and condemns unequivocally the Russian invasion of a neighbouring sovereign state.

"We are working to support our Ukrainian and Russian students, and any others in our University community affected by recent events, whether they are studying at our campuses in Sunderland and London, online, or with our overseas partners."


Vigil at Sunderland Minster

Sunderland Minster will be holding a peace vigil for Ukraine on Sunday, March 6, at 7pm.

This will include listening to the Ukranian Litany of Peace, hearing about how to support the people of Ukraine, and sharing anxieties and hopes.

The Minster welcomes anyone to come and show their solidarity with those who are currently living under conflict. The vigil will last around 45 minutes.
