Dear supporter,

We know some of you will be receiving this in local lockdown. Sometimes it feels as if this crisis will never end, but this must be how our older generation felt during the war, which was, of course, so much worse and blighted their young lives for years.

The war finally came to an end 75 years ago in 1945, leaving mass devastation in its wake. We mark this terrible time with a fascinating collection of wartime memories from some of our guests in north London. We're sure you'll agree that these accounts, collected by Re-engage volunteers, become more valuable with every year that passes. 

As the current crisis continues to hit this generation hard, never has there been a greater need for meaningful social contact. With this in mind, we also feature an inspiring experience from one of our longtime volunteers who, spurred on by the lockdown, took on a new role as a call companion coordinator.

We're looking for more volunteers for this crucial role. If you're interested, just follow the link below to find out more.

We hope you enjoy the read.

Stay safe and well everyone.
