At 3pm on Friday 8th May, we’d like you all to take part in the Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of the Second World War.
From the comfort of your own home, please raise a glass and state “To those who gave so much, we thank you,” to the millions of people that gave so much to make sure we all enjoy and share the freedom we have today.
The real heart of VE Day is the people and we really want to hear from you!
If you, a friend, or a family member has some pictures or stories from that time that you’d like to share then we’d love to see them!
You can send them to our Twitter page here or any of our Facebook pages by searching ‘ForHousing’ and finding your local area’s page. Keep your eye out for these being shared next week!
To say thank you, we’ll be sending tenants who are known veterans a special telegram styled card. If you would like to send a telegram styled card to a loved one, you can download and print the template here.
To help tenants at Extra Care and Supported Housing schemes relive some of their happy memories, we’re also planning on playing music from the 1940’s and 1950’s through the tannoy systems.
