You will have received a student email from the University about remembering Richard Okorogheye. We are all deeply saddened by the news of his death, and we recognise that the circumstances around Richard’s death have made it a very difficult situation to process.
Lots of you have been in contact with the SU and the University to ask how you can pass on your condolences to Richard’s family, as well as coming together as a community to remember Richard and reflect on the loss of a member of our community.
The University have organised a number of ways in which you can do this:
If you would like to make a financial contribution to Richard’s family, his aunt has set up this fundraiser which you can donate to here:Fundraiser for Richard's family
(please note this fundraiser is not connected to the University or Students’ Union)
The University have said they will be exploring a physical commemoration for Richard, when the pandemic allows and in line with any wishes his family may have.
If you need support or would like to speak with someone, you can reach out to the University Multifaith Chaplaincy as well as University Wellbeing.
