Dame Vera Lynn, one of our patrons, gives encouragement in these times.

Dame Vera Lynn has used her 103rd birthday to call on the British public to find “moments of joy” during these “hard times”.

The London-born singer marked the special occasion with a new video for her wartime classic We’ll Meet Again.

It features archive footage of her performing the anthem alongside new visuals, and words tackling current themes such as the Covid-19 outbreak.
