‘Not Forgotten’ to tour care homes
5 August, 2020
The Not Forgotten, a British Armed Forces charity which supports serving and ex-service men and women has launched ‘Those Not Forgotten Years’, a nationwide outdoor concert tour of care homes.
The concerts are part of the charity’s centenary celebrations and aim to entertain, boost morale and lift spirits by reaching thousands of care home residents across the country during a seven-week tour that will run until October.
The Not Forgotten professional entertainment team will perform a set of popular classics and rousing favourites from the ‘30s through to the ‘60s with a special tribute to Dame Vera Lynn, so residents can enjoy a trip down memory lane and an entertaining singalong after spending many weeks in lock-down.
The concerts will take place as small garden parties served alongside tea and cakes, all organised in strict adherence to current Covid-19 government guidelines and in close consultation with care home managers.
Weather permitting, they will be held outdoors within the grounds, but if rain intervenes, the show will go on and residents can watch from their windows while the performers entertain from a gazebo.
- The Not Forgotten charity combats isolation and loneliness among the Armed Forces community through social activities and challenge holidays. If care home staff are aware of someone who could benefit from the help of The Not Forgotten, they can get in touch by contacting Tel: 0207 730 2400
