A word from our home director

Ama Rai, home director, said: “The concert was absolutely brilliant. It was just the tonic for all our lovely residents. Who have managed to get through the most difficult of times. Enduring months without seeing family and friends.”

Brigadier James Stopford, CBE, CEO of The Not Forgotten said: “Sadly, events to commemorate VE Day, VJ Day and D Day could not take place properly this year, so we were determined to help World War Two veterans and those who have served their country mark these important days by bringing the celebrations to them.”

The Not Forgotten combats isolation and loneliness amongst the Armed Forces community through social activities and challenge holidays.
