Today marks #WindrushDay and the 73rd anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush to the UK. We're proud to have named one of our buildings after Princess Campbell, who arrived in Bristol in 1962 and became one of Bristol’s first black ward sisters. https://t.co/mSAS5joH39 https://t.co/APsQw8IppT
