Bluebird Care (Northumberland South) held its first war veteran coffee morning on the 29/05/14.

Five customers who served in the war were in attendance. Their backgrounds were the RAF, Army and Navy.

A huge thanks to the care workers who volunteered to pick up and drop off the customers and catered for this event and also to our Care Manager Sue Fender who kindly helped organise this coffee morning.

The coffee morning was a huge success. Our customers brought in photos of their time in the war and we printed off pictures of warships and planes that they were on. We even had a pilot in attendance at the age of 93.

These were then placed into a memories album which they took away with them.  We will hold this event once a month and we will add further memories of their lives as we go on.

Playing in the background was music selected by the customers, which brought back memories for each and every one of them.
