Derek and Celia Bell

 November 6, 2018 | Simon Jenkins


Celia Waddington (English and Fine Art 1968) met her future husband Derek Bell (Electrical Engineering 1964) on her very first day at the University of Leeds.

In this video, filmed during a visit to campus from their home in California, the couple talk about that fateful day, their time as students – and why they now choose to support scholarships for students at Leeds.
