Saturday 9 May 2015 marks the 70th Anniversary of the end of the Occupation by Nazi Germany. To celebrate this special occasion Age Concern Jersey are inviting Islanders who were in Jersey during the Occupation to attend a Liberation Day Lunch at The POMME D’OR HOTEL commencing at 12.00 noon.
This high profile event will be held in the Golden Apple Suite and will feature entertainment from "Swing Style" and a special performance from St Michaels Preparatory School Chamber Choir. Being fortunate enough to be in the hotel where so much of the activity on Liberation Day took place will give the elderly guests the opportunity to be on the spot to witness the raising of the Union Jack at 2.00 pm.
Places for the lunch are strictly limited to 230 so the invite is ONLY to those older people living in the island who were in Jersey during the Occupation. To apply you must write as soon as possible to:
Age Concern Jersey, Windsor House, Val Plaisant, JE2 4TA giving your name, age, date of birth, address and telephone number. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Letters should be marked ‘Liberation Lunch’ F.A.O Daphne Minihane or Aaron Labey.
To help Age Concern give these special VIP’s a great quality event they are asking individuals, schools and businesses to sponsor a "1940’s war themed dress down day" in their school, Bank or office on Friday 24 April. Cheques can be made payable to Age Concern Jersey and sent to Windsor House, Val Plaisant, JE2 4TA marked "Liberation Lunch".
