VE Day celebrations


We’re helping our residents and colleagues celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day in lockdown with special activity packs.

The anniversary of Victory in Europe Day on 8 May was set to be a significant occasion with the May bank holiday moved and large-scale events planned to commemorate the landmark.

We’re working with the Royal British Legion, National Memorial Arboretum and Citizen to help people mark the anniversary from their home by reading about VE Day and taking part in activities.

There are packs for children and adults and they include puzzles, recipes, extracts from Churchill speeches, lyrics to war songs and much more.

We’re delighted to be able to give our customers the chance to mark this hugely significant anniversary. We hope the packs help individuals and families engage with and celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day in a really positive way.

Packs are available for 7-11-year-olds, 11-16-year-olds and 16+.
