At a time which normally brings us all closer together, this Christmas comes with unique challenges, which will leave many feeling more lonely and isolated than ever.
But, despite the obstacles, we’re determined to make this festive season a special one for our veterans.
Our traditional Christmas party (pictured above) and lunches are unable to go ahead as planned, but we have adapted, and our usual events been replaced with creative new ways of reaching out and connecting with more people than we perhaps ever have.
This year, we have come up with three main ways of ensuring that our beneficiaries are Not Forgotten this Christmas:
Jingle Bell Rock
Our drive-in shows will allow veterans to enjoy a great live concert and festive lunch from the comfort of their cars!
We’re bringing our shows to 12 locations across the country, and have taken every precaution to make sure that the concerts can go ahead smoothly, safely, and in line with the latest COVID-19 guidance.

We have just finished producing a Christmas Show, which will be sent to 1,500 care homes across the country, as well as our beneficiaries between the ages of 70-90.
Supported by the Lest We Forget Association, this DVD features a collection of Christmas classics, sung by the performers from our recent care home concert tour, and special guests, including the Band of The Welsh Guards.
Care Home Concerts
Following the success of our outdoor concert tour, ‘Those Not Forgotten Years’, we have scheduled an extra series of socially-distanced performances to coincide with the Jingle Bell Rock tour.
We are currently set to bring Christmas cheer to 11 care homes across the country, with a performance at one further care home postponed until the new year.
