How will you remember them?

An item from the organization formerly known as There But Not There.


HOW WILL YOU REMEMBER THEM?
Remembrance Sunday, 8 November 2020, is fast approaching and we know this year may be a little different to usual. But that won’t stop us all celebrating, honouring and remembering.

And what about this inspirational display from Suzie and Martin Orrell in East London! Using our Plant Pot Tommies and with some help from renowned graffiti artist A.Dee (also known as the Artful Dodger), they have created a stunning tribute to Suzies Grandfather, Remembrance Sunday and to respect for all those who gave their tomorrow for our today. 

Suzies Dad, who is now 78 years old, lost his Father on 17th March 1945 – three days after his third birthday. They believe he was fighting in North Africa with Montgommery’s Desert Rats, fell ill and somehow ended up in St John Hospital in Jerusalem. In early 2012, Suzie heard her Dad say the words “Hi Dad” for the very first time, at the grave site in Ramleh Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR TOMMY TEA SUPERSTARS!
Wow, what an incredible turn out we’ve had! So many people have been busy raising a cup (and vital funds) for our Tommies.

You’ve been so creative in ways to hold your Tommy Tea and we are seriously impressed. From bring your own picnic, cake deliveries and Zoom call parties. The rule of 6 hasn’t stopped anyone. Keep sharing your photos and top tips to inspire those yet to hold their tea!

Many of our supporters have asked if they can still hold a Tommy Tea – and the answer is of course YES PLEASE!

Tommy Teas will continue to be held well into November and we are here to support you. We have everything from recipe cards to social distancing tea tips.
