VE Day is poignant for many of our clients and Christies Carers.
As they isolate together, lots of them were able to enjoy the sunshine, enjoy afternoon tea in the garden, wave a flag and even join in with a sing a long…just the thing to cheer everyone under lockdown.
We asked everyone to send us their VE Day pictures, memories and accounts of their day. It was great to read actual first-hand accounts in a VE Day memoir and learn all the different things our clients and carers planned to enjoy safely together at home.
And these from a client in Jersey
“We have had a lovely celebration today, with a fantastic afternoon tea. I attach some photos of my mother enjoying her day.
The photos in the background of the old documents are family members who had German registration documents during the occupation.
Hope you like the photos, Dawn made the cake … with mum’s help!
Hope you enjoyed VE Day” 😊
One client made forget-me-not flower arrangements
“I picked the flowers (except for the tulips) from R’s garden. She then arranged these flowers in memory of her brother John, who was in the tank division and her sister Mary, who was a code breaker, in the last war and who both suffered badly through it.
She enjoyed talking about them whilst she arranged the flowers.”
