Many of our residents were saddened today to hear of the death of Dame Vera Lynn. Whilst she undoubtedly lived an amazing and long life which deserves to be celebrated it is always sad when a national icon passes.
For so many of our residents, across all our homes, she will be remembered as someone who was a shining light during a time of crisis. She became the nation’s sweetheart over three-quarters of a century ago during the Second World War and has remained in many people’s hearts ever since.
Today our residents would like to pay tribute to her and to thank her for all she has done for their spirits over many years, giving not only enjoyment but also hope to so many.
