Spirit of Ubuntu Commendations

Description: The Spirit of Ubuntu Commendation, kindly sponsored by Ashtons Legal, replaces what would have been the Chamber's Annual Awards, which we have had to delay to next year due to the current pandemic. The Awards usually celebrate dedication and excellence amongst the UK/SA community across a number of fields.

However, there is a special group of people for whom the pandemic has not meant working from home or being furloughed, it has not meant self-isolation and social distancing. Frontline essential workers, and especially those in the health care sector, have been called upon to work harder and in more dangerous conditions than many of us would find comfortable. Some of them have become ill as a result, and some of them have even paid with their lives.

The Spirit of Ubuntu Commendation is a moment to reflect on and recognise their extraordinary sacrifice and dedication. Ubuntu is an African concept that means "I am, because you are". In the context of the pandemic, we all are because of the bravery and committment of essential front-line workers who, when so many have fallen ill, have been there to care for us, and through their selfless dedication have saved many thousands of lives. Others have continued to provide essential services despite the risk to themselves which have kept society functioning.

During this special webinar we'll hear from a few of those nominated, and pay tribute to them all.

The webinar is free, but booking is essential. Links will be sent out in the 24 hours preceding the event.
