Care England are pleased to announced that we are supporting the “Flame of Forgiveness Fortnight”, a new initiative between care homes & schools to commemorate the centenary of WWI, which is taking place from 6th-19th October 2014.
Professor Martin Green OBE, Care England’s Chief Executive, said:
“I am delighted to be supporting the “Flame of Forgiveness” which came about as an idea from Teresa Pearce MP for Erith & Thamesmead, to acknowledge the anniversary of the outbreak of World War I and to promote cross generation connections in local communities between care homes & schools. It is so good to see that the anniversary of the First World War is being commemorated in a way that focuses on forgiveness, and encourages people to join together in harmony, to acknowledge the sacrifices of those who gave their lives during this terrible conflict, and to affirm that humanity and forgiveness have to be the basis of our future.”
“I hope the many Care England members, will join this commendable initiative and throw their support behind a commemoration that recognises the sacrifices of the past, but looks forward to a better future.”
